Dream Meaning Spider

Dream interpretation Spider


No matter whether you don't like spiders because of their predatory habits, or the way they look, it can be easy to understand why most would be upset to see them in a dream. That said, few other noxious dream symbols have a positive meaning in the precognitive sense, let alone help you live a richer, fuller life. At the very least, if you are having financial issue, relationship issues, or can't seem to reach any concrete understandings in your life, this dream symbol may just help you find the answers you are looking for.

General Dream Meaning: Spider

Overall, spiders in a dream represent financial improvement, good news, or other forms of good luck. They can also represent powerful female energies and protection. Unfortunately, if you kill a spider in your dream, it may mean bad luck is on the way. On the other hand, if you see one climbing up a wall, it means that success will soon be yours. If you see a spider spinning a web, it can mean you will work hard, but also receive a significant reward.

When it comes to your inner landscape, spiders can represent people or situations that you feel isolated from. In many cases, a spider may refer to a dictatorial mother, or some other powerful figure that has you "trapped" in some sort of difficult situation. Needless to say, if you are bitten by a spider, it can signify that at some level, you feel an enormous amount of conflict with this person, or some aspect of your inner psyche.

How Dream Symbol Spider may Fit in your Life

A dream of a spider can easily indicate that you look forward to better things in your future. That said, there is no such thing as a dream symbol that indicates a need to stop working, or taking tangible action to achieve your goals. In fact, dreaming of a spider may well indicate that you will need to continue working to gain your objectives.

Interestingly enough, if you have many areas of disorder in your life, the orderly and intricate nature of a spider's web can help you think of ways to sort through your confusions. At the very least, if you are feeling isolated, or like someone else has you entangled, this dream may just help you pinpoint where the problems are.

A Sample Dream meaning and Spider Dream Interpretation

Consider a dream where you see several dozen spiders on the floor of your bedroom. Somehow or other, they all begin to merge, leaving just one in the center of the room. Although you are not afraid of spiders, you feel a bit apprehensive about this one. Slowly, it stands up and takes human form. At first, you think the spider is an aunt that took care of you for long periods of time. Then, you realize that it is your supervisor at work. You wake up at that point wondering if you completed a specific task at work the evening before.

In this particular dream, the dozens of spiders merging into one may represent a number of area in your life that are affected by one single person Since the spider morphs from a childhood caregiver to your current supervisors, you can conclude that the dream has roots in your childhood, as well as some current situation. Even though this dream takes place in your bedroom, you can still conclude that the dream is mainly about work. That said, you may be feeling that you cannot achieve your goals at work, or that work relationships have an impact on your home life. In this case, the initial number of spiders can easily lend themselves to this interpretation.

Since the dream ended with you wondering about a work task, this dream may be nothing more than your mind working off the stress of the day. That said, if you continue to have this type of dream, then you may need to take a look at your work capacity and personal satisfaction during the day. If you happen to find that you are "entangled", or see other spider type symbols, then you may want to see if you can do things differently. On the other hand, if you previously failed to notice job advancement opportunities, then a spider dream may just help you massage that into some good luck in the near future.

I dreamed I was on a field with big and small spiders on the trees and the big spiders were protecting pretty stones. Then I was being chased by a big white spider and once it jumped on me I woke up.

Dreams involving spiders and being chased can evoke a mix of emotions and carry significant symbolism. Here's a breakdown of the elements in your dream and potential meanings:

In general, spiders can symbolize several things in dreams:
- Creativity and the weaving of one's destiny: Spiders are known for their ability to weave intricate webs, which can symbolize creativity and the ability of the dreamer to create their own life or destiny.
- Feelings of being an outsider or isolated: Seeing spiders might reflect feelings of isolation or being on the outskirts socially or emotionally.
- Anxiety and fears: Spiders often evoke fear. Their appearance in dreams can represent underlying anxieties or specific fears the dreamer might be facing.
- Protection: Given that the larger spiders in your dream were guarding pretty stones, this might indicate a protective aspect of your personality or a protective force in your life, safeguarding something valuable (represented by the pretty stones).

#Pretty Stones:
The stones being protected by spiders could symbolize something valuable in your life—personal qualities, relationships, or achievements—that you see as precious and perhaps feel the need to guard or that feels guarded.

#Being Chased:
Dreams of being chased typically symbolize avoidance. They often suggest that there's an issue or situation in your waking life that you want to run away from rather than confront. The big white spider chasing you could represent a specific fear, problem, or aspect of yourself that you're avoiding.

#Big White Spider Jumping:
The color white can have various associations. Often, it's linked to purity, innocence, or even spirituality. In the context of a spider, the color might juxtapose your fears with something that is inherently good or pure. The act of the spider jumping on you and causing you to awaken might symbolize a sudden realization, awakening, or confrontation with something you've been avoiding.

#Personal Reflection:
To better understand what this dream might mean for you, consider what feelings and thoughts it evoked. Reflect on current anxieties, challenges, or situations you might be avoiding. The dream could be encouraging you to confront these issues rather than run from them. Alternatively, it might be spotlighting the protective measures you (or others) take to guard what's valuable in your life.

Dreams use the language of symbols to communicate messages from our subconscious. The interpretations can vary widely depending on personal associations, current life circumstances, and emotional states. Consider what resonates with you most in these interpretations to find the meaning applicable to your own life and psyche.

[just=center]I jolt awake from a dream this morning and it's normal for me to have weird spiritual dreams and this is my third spider dream in the last three months. Black spider with some yellow signature color on its bigger back side. Its front legs we're up for defense while sitting on a brown dog's head. The brown dog was Happy and wagging it's tail all happy and jumped on someone else. It barked playfully with it's tongue hanging out but not long to really notice. As I notice the spider I moved backwards and when I did that the spider jumped off the dog and hopped on my hair. I admit I did panicked because I don't like spiders in Waking Life but from experience of spiritual dreams I made sure I didn't kill the spider. But after it jumped on me it made me thought to myself cautiously that I think "Oh okay... I guess I'll be okay". Than I woke up.[/just]
Marita 2017-07-17 01:35:47
I had a dream about a huge brown spider being in the house. My adult daughter (21 years old)was screaming because she was scared. My 4 year old son wasn't scared and wanted to be brave and kill it for his big sister. I was worried my young son would be bitten so I raced after the spider to kill it before my son did. I missed the first attempt cos the spider ran, and both my son and I chased it. the spider turned and leapt at my son. I woke up before it had a chance to land on my little boy. Does this dream mean anything?
Lakeyshia 2017-02-05 04:14:04

In my dream there were three blue-green swirled spiders dangling from the bathroom ceiling, I was feeling scared more about feeling them crawling on my skin than anything else and eventually when they got close enough I sprayed them with the shower head to get them away from me...

I had a dream that I was spending the night at my moms and multiple little brown spider looking things were on her bed. I tried to take them off the bed but I found myself with more and more. When I went to grab one it turned whiteish. I went to the window and looked up to my grandmothers house who has passed away and saw my mom at the window. I called her and she came down stairs and told her she had spiders in her bad she said yes I was hoping someone else saw them there too. They've been pestering me.

Tracey 2016-09-26 17:42:26
I had this dream about a year ago and it has puzzled me ever since: I'm sitting at a table outside, in an enclosed garden. It's part of the house, surrounded by stone walls as high as the walls of the house. The house/garden structure is shaped like an 8, with a tunnel at the center. Sunny, beautiful day. A man (Richard) sits at the table, reading. All is peaceful. I look up to see a spider on the wall in front of me. Then something large moves in the rose bush that grows over where the entry door to the house used to be. It's a HUGE fat spider, must weigh at least 20 pounds. It's watching me. I'm horrified. A second giant spider (10 pounds) is sitting on the old doorway, and a third identical but smaller spider (5 pounds) is sleeping on top of the doorway.
I'm terrified, but Richard acts like its normal and keeps reading, saying only that I should uncover that doorway. I see dozens of more normal sized spiders everywhere I look.
NO WEBS anywhere until I see one golden spider (2 inches in diameter) on my right shoulder and others lowering themselves toward me. There is one on my left shoulder now and I scream, knocking them away.
One gold spider turns and looks up at me, I feel like I hurt the spiders feelings! I run for the tunnel, calling for Richard to follow me. He doesn't. I turn to look for him and now the giant spider is in his lap, he's holding the spider with its underside facing him as though the spider is a book he is reading.
The spider turns over and looks at me, I feel like it's trying to talk to me. Richard nods as though listening respectfully. The spider is now so swollen that it sloshes as it moves. I expect it to burst and i imagine the ocean pouring out of it... Water, sand, crabs,sea shells... Flooding the patio and I feel sick at the thought, even though I love the ocean.
I know I can't stay in the tunnel forever, so I go back out into the sun. The spiders are all looking at me with expectation... Like they are hoping for something from me.
Then I woke up. All the giant spiders were green with thin stripes on their backs, I was wearing a navy blue winter vest with thin stripes on the zipper pulls. The stripes match those on the spiders (red,green,black,orange,yellow)
All the spiders had 8 eyes. I never remember dreams... But this one I can't forget.

I had a dream that I was walking thru a Goodwill and saw a huge spider web in one of the aisles. I had to get thru cause it was the only way to the register. So I started to maneuver thru the web until I got to the end. I ended up getting part of the web on my ankle and actually took a spider egg with it. Hundreds of baby spiders comes out and starts crawling on my ankle. I scream and start to swipe them away. Then the cashier starts laughing and then my dream changes.
Tera 2016-09-15 07:02:21

I often have dreams of where a single (2 ft size) spider is constantly trying to attach it self to me and often I always feel fearful. Each dream is different whereas I am always running away from the spider because often my dreams begin with the spider always aggressively trying to attach it's self to my back or rib. Coincidentally, I've had few dreams where the spider successful catches up to me and attaches itself to my body as if it's about to bite, but during those times, someone ( unfamiliar face ) is near by to help me remove the spider from my back. I can see where those could believe my dream may mean that the spider is trying to trap me to do harm but it's unclear who or what. Before reading some of the post online, I always that thought my dreams meant the spider means cunning and aggressive predatorial killers hence my fearful experiences. I often have these dreams throughout my entire life and I've tried to reason with the different meanings of the dream. I've even tried comparing myself to the spider with the above description. Maybe in some way I'm being to aggressive with others but that's not the case as I run through all the different logical scenarios. I'm still not certain what those dreams mean and why does the spider always make me feel fearful and most importantly why the spider constantly wants to attach itself to me.
Danica Rigdao 2016-08-28 11:20:43
I dreamed of me picking spider but when I pick it up ..it started to crawl in my hands! So I try to make the spider out ofmy hand but didnt work ..so the spider crawl and crawl in my hand. I tried my very best to remove it but I cant.. It produce more baby spiders in my hand instead.. in the end I got tired and just let the spider crawl.

RIP english grammar forgive me :P
Heather 2016-12-13 11:50:09
The same dream as Danica! I tried andtried to swat it off flick it, squish it but nothing!Then it bit me..
Claire 2016-08-24 14:16:55
In my dream I was searching for something in the bedroom, and a spider appeared on the wardrobe and I watched it crawl sideways towards me, but I was safely on the bed... It's the second dream I've had about spiders but never has one crawled on or tried to attack/bite me.....

I had a dream last night about all kinds of spiders. It began with one crawling around the room. I captured it and place it in a jar. Then out of no where a HUGE black spider with 4 white strips appears. This spider devoured the captured spider. Now I am in fear but at ease. Then three baby spiders craw out from under my bed. I'm freaking out but also felt like I could deal with the fear. But I persisted to believe the fear was more overwhelming. I then decided to end to the madness and started to spray the baby spiders with roach spray in my effort to kill them. They would not die! As I sprayed directly into their mouths it seemed like I was feeding them. Like baby birds being feed by their mother. But after sometime they melted into the floor. Just weird!!
Jen 2016-07-12 10:34:19
i am having dreams of seeing a spider crawling either on the wall or next to me. Sometimes he gets bigger as he crawls. I jump up and still see it until I start to fully awaken. this has been a dream that randomly happens for over 26 years. They seem far-and-in-between, but I have had at least three within the last couple months.
Suze 2017-12-24 21:11:45
I have this. Exactly as you describe. And for many years. Often it is dangling from a thread. I jolt awake, and it takes me a while to realise it’s irrational.
Emely 2016-07-10 10:55:36
I had a dream that I was brushing my hair and out of nowhere these two FAT black and red spiders came out of my hair!! So I tried killing them and when I did, a lot of blood came out of them.. ??? what is this trying to tell me??? Anyone know??
kelvin 2016-07-03 21:06:23
we were in a room with a girl i think she was someone close to me since she seemed pregnant with my child then a spider came out of nowhere and started crawling on the open door between us. It seemed like it was attacking her and I started calling my fathers name so loud. I could sense he was around but he never came to help. I kept calling and the spider hid its head in a crack for a while and then swiftly came out crawling towards me. It scared the hell out of me and had to wake up.
Shamera 2016-06-27 19:37:10
I had a dream that I was sitting in my bed alome and my family members were gathered sitting in front of it. I saw a colorful spidee crawling on the bed and I wasn't really frightened because I remained calm. I ask a relative what's ir doing on the bed, it was heading towards her and she took it and throw it back on the bed and said to let it stay there. I was just sitting calmly but was wondering why would she say that.
Hannah 2016-06-09 08:24:11
I had a dream last night that involved three blue/blackish spiders. I was lying on my stomach observing them, I was unafraid but maybe a little uncomfortable. The largest spider was on its back, legs flailing struggling to flip over. It seemed like I watched it for a very long time before it suddenly flipped itself over and scurried up the wall and the other two blue spiders followed it....
Any insight on the meaning would be greatly appreciated!
Kim 2016-06-08 18:47:41
In my dream, as I enter the room, I saw lots of webs and a huge spider on the corner wall. I got scared but the spider followed me and talked to me calmly saying "tell me your problems and I'll help you" but I still ran away from it. And while running, I have a gut feeling that I should talk to it again, but then again, was so scared.

Cameron 2016-06-08 00:42:14

Kianne 2016-05-25 02:45:39
I dreamt last night that the world got overtaken by a Spider Apocalypse and whoever got bitten turns into a Spider too. It was just really creepy because it seems so true, everyone was freaking out and the only place that was safe from those spiders was my school. The only thing I remember most was that someone tried to bite me, then I put out a shovel and took its head off.

A coworker dresmt of me in her house leaving a spider and walking away

What about a giant ass spider with a hard outer shell -- actually there was two of them. I tried to kill the first one by stabbing it on its back but it didn't die at all and that just given me more panic. I think I was filling a bit bloodlust-y or something. Since the first one didn't die, I let the second one out of my room while the first one still stuck at the end of my blunt stick. I almost went out to chase it, thinking 'what about my neighbors??' but then cockroaches started appearing. I felt like I was in survival mode. I left the spider on a stick on the floor and I just sought for higher ground, like my bed, and then, the spider started crawling towards the roach and ate one. And then I started making use of the spider by directing it towards the other roaches, while stil worrying over the other spider I let out of the room.

I'm starting to REALLY regret my decisions except the feeding the spider with the cockroaches because regardless of what those pests represent, I. Hate. Them. I just... can't stand them.
