Dream meaning: Spider

SpiderNegatively a female spider can represent a devouring mother or female; the feminine power to possess or ensnare. Contrary to the negative attitudes we have about spiders, in Native American cultures spider is healing and helpful sign. For some spider is creator for others its trickster.

To dream of a spider, denotes that you will be careful and energetic in your labors, and fortune will be amassed to pleasing proportions.

To see one building its web, foretells that you will be happy and secure in your own home.

To kill one, signifies quarrels with your wife or sweetheart.

If one bites you, you will be the victim of unfaithfulness and will suffer from enemies in your business.

If you dream that you see many spiders hanging in their webs around you, foretells most favorable conditions, fortune, good health and friends.

To dream of a large spider confronting you, signifies that your elevation to fortune will be swift, unless you are in dangerous contact.

To dream that you see a very large spider and a small one coming towards you, denotes that you will be prosperous, and that you will feel for a time that you are immensely successful; but if the large one bites you, enemies will steal away your good fortune. If the little one bites you, you will be harassed with little spites and jealousies. To imagine that you are running from a large spider, denotes you will lose fortune in slighting opportunities. If you kill the spider you will eventually come into fair estate. If it afterwards returns to life and pursues you, you will be oppressed by sickness and wavering fortunes.

For a young woman to dream she sees gold spiders crawling around her, foretells that her fortune and prospect for happiness will improve, and new friends will surround her.

  • Lovie // Sep 23, 2015 at 11:16 am

    My husband had a dream about two spiders. He had removed something from the ground and the male spider came out and darted across the pavement. Subsequently, a female spider came out and she was pregnant with ugh a million eggs on her back and then she darted across the pavement. There was no attack, no contact whatsoever. What does this dream mean?

  • Gabriela // Jul 6, 2015 at 10:44 am

    I dreamed that I was in my room and there was a big brown spider, I was scared of it but it wasn’t attacking me it was just walking around my house. I remember getting out my room and telling my mom to put it on a tank so it wont be walking around because I was scared of it. Then I remember going back into my room and looking at my ceiling, walls and floor they were full of baby spiders with only two legs.

  • Woman of curiosity // Mar 11, 2015 at 12:28 pm

    I had dreamed that it looked as though I was walking on snakes, killer bees, and red, black, and gold spiders…I couldn’t figure out where I was-for a long time in the dream…I was up in the air like walking on clouds and the next minute I’m walking down some steps to go to a swimming pool, when I turn around to put my towel down on a chair I’m walking down a long hallway…then it was like I was on TV or something…next thing I know there are spiders that are gold, red, and black crawling everywhere, like I let them free from their cages or something. I tried waking up and the dream would not let me finally I was able to wake up…it was intense and have no idea what it’s suppose to mean.

  • Pink Sexy 82 // Dec 9, 2014 at 10:45 pm

    I had a dream 2 weeks ago about spiders in their webbs. Plus. I was in my old grandmother house in Decatur Ga mercer drive. ANYWAY i came outside and notice spiders. In their web all around me. So i knew that i will get bitten if i touch the webb. The spiders were pretty big…big as in a size like magic Johnson Hands. Any way. I close my eyes and started thinking. How Am i geting out of this. When i open my eyes i was floating just a little. Of ground…i was like ohhhh how did i do this…so i heard a voice. Saying you must focus in order to get out…i did it i was floating above the spiders…

  • dani // Nov 7, 2014 at 8:07 pm

    I dreamt I was walking through my house and came back to my room with a flashlight only for the light to catch a massive web that had just literally been built and connected by orbal weaving spiders all over. All the walls and ceiling were covered by these thick elaborate webs leaving just enough room for me to squeeze through and the yellow spiders were many sizes most huge. I was so scarred they’d fall on me but none did. I tried to naturally get a can of spray and kill them but I don’t think any of them died and the can was almost empty before I started using it…Plus there were at least a couple of hundred of them

  • Angelica // Oct 17, 2014 at 8:24 pm

    I had a dream last night where a large(maybe the size of a piece of printer paper, so 11 inches?) tanish spider was wearing a black and red top hat and a red and black jacket. He seemed very nice and a little cartoonish(he wasn’t creepy looking). He was sitting in a tree with a female spider on the other side. She was also tan but looked a little creepy. She was making a web that had two little egg sacks on each side. I picked her up and put her on my chest (I have a fairly large chest size and I took care of a tarantula for Biology over the summer, and she liked to sit there). The female spider got mad and so I tried to put her in a crayon box (she was obviously much smaller than the male, but seemed pretty big compared to him at first. Shrinking spider!) she got really mad then and started running around my head. Then I woke up and got paranoid thinking that anything that touched me was a giant spider, since I woke up around 2:30 am. I couldn’t sleep after that… Worse part is, I really like spiders. That’s why I babysat the Biology tarantula… And I have hermit crabs, which kinda look like tarantulas in a shell. My mom said she had a dream about a year ago with the male spider who was dressed up with the hat and coat. She said he carried two suitcases and in one there was a little folding chair for him. He would sit there with an umbrella and observe people, occasionally moving around or changing positions/poses. Any idea what these dreams mean?

  • Lyrik // Oct 11, 2014 at 5:28 pm

    I dreamed of a large black widow spider crawling across my face in my sleep. By large I mean about the size of a soft ball..huge. I am not scared of spiders but I was afraid I would smush or harm it. I was trying to pull it off my face as it walked across from right to left but it was too heavy and hard to pull off. I was pulling on it, not wanting to hurt it and it was just walking across my face and I couldn’t pull it off. This dream has stuck with me so much that I had to try and look up the meaning. It was such a lucid dream that I can still feel it. Strange…Have no idea what this could mean…just that it was soo vivid.

  • Dustin // Oct 6, 2014 at 9:27 pm

  • Will // Oct 4, 2014 at 9:26 pm

    I had a dream that I was in a room. There were about 7 or 8 huge spiders on their backs as if they were dying. There was a hole in the floor of the room that appeared to be 12″ to 15″ in diameter. I started pushing them in the hole when suddenly one of them started flying and landed on the roof outside. All of a sudden it started spraying out water as if it was a sprinkler. At this point my mother, who passed away, is standing next to me and I’m trying to prevent us from getting wet.

  • Kylie // Sep 25, 2014 at 7:00 pm

    1st Dream:
    I went into my moms room early in the morning, she was sleeping (if you are facing the bed) on the right side. Her bathroom has French doors right next to that side of the bed. I went inside the bathroom to borrow something and I had just woken her up because she didn’t hear her alarm for work. As I walked out of the bathroom I saw a bright yellowish gold spider on the corner of the side of the end of the bed she was on. My mom jumped to the other side of the bed flinging the spider on the floor. And then all of a sudden the spider ran to me, I tried killing it. Then it ran under the bed towards my mom and she tried killing it. This went on and on and then eventually i either killed it or it bit me. I don’t know because I woke up.
    #2 DREAM:
    In either a hotel or apartment complex hallway I was with three friends I knew. This big black ball like spider, kind of like a magic 8 ball except without the white and it had legs. Kept jumping around the room, it jumped on the wall, then the floor, then the ceiling, then the wall next to me, then my friends but they didn’t even notice and I tried warning them but they were in their own conversation. And then it finally landed on my chest right bellow my chin, and I woke up.

  • Karen // Aug 6, 2014 at 10:02 am

    I had a dream this humongous spider kept plopping around making loud plopping sounds and I was afraid it would hurt it self so I picked it up and put it in a cage so it would be safe and then several smaller spiders came and I had to find cages for them and I was trying to think of what they eat and then I woke up.

  • Jamie // Oct 15, 2013 at 6:30 pm

    I had a dream last night there were spiders in my shoes. First there was only a couple, then more and more started coming out. I wasn’t scared, (I usually hate spiders) but I was surprised at how many kept coming. Any ideas?

  • maxine // Oct 7, 2013 at 10:56 am

  • Terrilee // Jul 4, 2013 at 9:45 am

    In my dream I was in bed and I looked at my bedroom walls and there were more then a few spiders in their webs in the doorway, trying to get to me. I’m crying and my grandmother grabs my hand and pulls me through the door way. As I am swatting them away and yelling spiders r trying to get me. Then I wake up next morning in Nan’s bed. I go in my room and find 2 dead black spiders. I told my nan and she said she had to come and grab me. She told me I must have been dreaming about spiders. I was yelling there gonna get me and trying to swat them away from my nan and myself, but she couldn’t see them. I was very scared and it felt so real. What I want to know is what it means when you find dead spiders in your bed.?? Can any body tell me what it means.??

  • Nayelly // Jul 2, 2013 at 8:17 pm

    In my dream I was sitting on my couch and tiny spiders were coming out underneath the couch. Then I sat up and was just standing there scared of all of these tiny spiders. Then a giant, I guess it was the mom spider came out and it took off outside the house. What does it mean?

  • Lindsay // Jun 20, 2013 at 2:23 pm

  • Anna // Mar 18, 2013 at 7:45 am

    I dreamed that i was at home with my mom. We were staying in different couches to rest, covered with blankets cause it was cold. I saw a black hole in the ceiling and a big spider coming out of it slowly with its web. I got scared and wanted to wake up my mom, but she didn’t listen, she continued sleeping. That spider was just comming towards me, but didn’t seem hostile. Than another black hole was opened in the cieling and another spider came out in the same way. But this was like grey & white with a texture like a mosaic. Its body was bigger than the first and the arms were shorter. It was very big. I felt like i wanted to kill them but i just couldn’t see where they went. Afraid, i woke up from the couch and saw some little brown spiders that i had killed, trying to escape from the big ones. Than i turned my head to the wall of my couch, and suddenly different sized black holes were opening, and different sized and colored spiders was going to come out of them, following me. They were not hostile, they didn’t bite me, they just were like admiring me, passing on my walls, passing over my body. The final spider i remember was a green one, with big body and plastic arms. Then i woke up from my dream. It was freaky.. what does this mean?

  • Melba // Mar 7, 2013 at 8:59 pm

  • Hanna // Mar 6, 2013 at 4:42 am

    I had a dream where I was on my way to an event. I saw three cups lying on the ground with three small white spiders in each one of them. Then I was walking through the main entrance and then this huge tarantula like the size of a tiger (except it had three arms and legs instead of four) tried to attack me but my friend killed it by squishing it and pus came out everywhere.

    What does it mean??

  • rose // Feb 5, 2013 at 7:44 pm

Some were angry most l killed…during the swatting l was afraid but more concerned about killing them ! What in the world does my dream mean?

  • Frank // Feb 5, 2013 at 3:21 am

    Please tell me the meaning of this dream:

    I had two dreams at two different locations about spiders in their webs. The spiders would crawl away when we would shine the light towards them. In my dream I saw my deceased uncle and one of his sons walking together toward. me so I warned them of the spider web they were about to run into. And I was too busy knocking the spiders that were closer to me.. I wonder what my dream was trying to tell me or warn me about.

  • Sade // Jan 23, 2013 at 7:53 am

    I dreamed that a friend of mine who is currently pregnant gave me a big glass box, approximately 30×30 cm. It was a beautiful box but when I got home I saw that there was a very large hairy brown spider in the box. My friend told me to take care of it and I have no idea why, but in my dream I did want to take care of it. Later I saw that the spider was dying and realised it had eaten nothing since it was under my supervision, when I wanted to feed it a cricket it tried to escape, and unfortunately it did. When I tried to get it back into the box, it bit me.

    What can this possibly mean?

  • sylvia // Jan 5, 2013 at 4:20 am

    A few nights ago I had a dream of a minute or less that a spider was crawling out from inside my hand and when it was gone I started squeezing out everything else. That’s all I remember dreaming that night. What does it mean & why do I keep picturing that dream over again?? Please, any one.

  • CiCi // Dec 18, 2012 at 10:07 am

  • Gee // Nov 24, 2012 at 7:35 am

    I dreamt that a big black spider somehow got into my house and my youngest son was trying to help me catch it. When suddenly it jumped on my left hand and started sticking its legs in my hand. It was just stuck on there and I was trying to get it off and that’s when I woke up. It was creepy.

  • Kacy // Nov 13, 2012 at 12:30 pm

    around my dad got stuck with the bigger spider but he eventually escaped. We were so afraid of moving near the room that my father was in. Then after minutes we found the huge spider being killed by the smaller one. What does this mean?

  • Janaine // Oct 30, 2012 at 8:41 am

    I dreamt that a large spider was in a bathroom on the floor near the left side of the toilet as I was walking in. I don’t know whose bathroom it was. I stopped and saw that there also was a smaller spider. It looked like one of those jumping spiders. The larger spider moved toward the smaller one and killed it. They never once came towards me. That’s all I remember. What does this mean?

  • Paige // Aug 27, 2012 at 8:48 am

    I have had the same dream three days in a row. I have no clue of how it starts. All I remember is one of my friends go into the bathroom to take a shower, then this huge black and red colored spider pops out of no where and covers the bathroom door. I walk towards it and it gets ready to attack so I leave it alone. The second night I had this dream the spider was still there hovering over the bathroom door. Then the third night I see it on the floor dead, but when I go towards the door you could still feel the presence of the spider about to attack..IDK what my dream means

  • Valerie // Aug 21, 2012 at 5:14 am

    I dreamed about a bunch of tiny black spiders with a red dots on their backs coming out of a hole on the table. They were all crawling out in single file order. I ended up killing them but, there were so many and they just kept coming out of the hole.. I do not recall getting bitten but I had 3 spider bites all along my arm. My son also had a spider bite and was rushed to the hospital.

  • Teala // Mar 3, 2012 at 8:48 am

    My dream was weird. I was on the ship and I heard, like a rumor, in my dream there was some dangerous bug hurting people. The bugs were getting into people’s shoes. Then I saw the first spider that tried to attack. Then I ran out to talk to my mom or dad (I can’t remember which). There was another spider. This one flew. I tried to knock it out but it flew right by me, then jumped at me and attacked me on the side. The spider I think it was dark brown not black. It looked poisonous.

  • scott // Feb 23, 2012 at 2:07 pm

    Last night I had a dream that a black spider with red spots, the size of a large dog, was trying to escape out of my front door. It was clawing on it like a dog wanting to go outside. That’s all I remember.

  • sabrina // Jul 29, 2011 at 12:55 am

    I don’t know where I was. Someone brought a bag full of freshly picked fruit/veggies. black spiders started crawling out of them, then on me. I tried to flick them off me with no success. More kept on coming. I asked a friend to help me, then I woke up.

  • Rosa // Jul 11, 2011 at 7:16 pm

    I had a dream that a yellowish spider bit my hand and I had to rush to the hospital. As I woke up, the same spider that was in my dream was sitting on my bedroom door frame.

  • Candace // Jun 25, 2011 at 1:05 pm

    I dreamed there were two spiders, both about the size of a pancake…crawling around the furniture. One was hot pink in color (flourescent)) the other blue and green ( flourescent). I caught them both.

  • joey // Mar 24, 2011 at 2:47 pm

    I had a dream that I was on Mars and there were giant robotic spiders coming towards me. And then in each of their limbs a spider grew out of it, and then those spiders limbs grew spiders, and so on (like a fractal) until they were atom sized. and then they consumed my entire body, and I could feel it, it felt like my entire body being impaled by hot needles!

  • Lisa // Feb 23, 2011 at 3:01 pm

    I had a dream that I got out of my car. The drivers side door had spider webs over the top of it and there was a black spider (large body, little head and
    legs.) It was making the webs and when I got out of the car it started to jump and get onto me. I got away but it developed wings and started flying short distances trying to get on to me, I was swatting at it with my purse and it would fly up, circle around and try landing on me again. It was coming in to try and land again when I woke up with my arms moving, trying to block it… I never knew spiders could fly, really weird… Need interpretation if anyone has one.

  • Lindsey // Feb 16, 2011 at 8:06 am

    I was standing outside by a house and a very large redwood tree when all of the sudden a gigantic spider like 5 times my size showed up out of nowhere and i got scared. The next thing I knew it was shot up into the air and went above the redwood tree. I was just standing there watching it fall, telling myself I threw it up there, so hopefully when it hits the ground it dies. Then I ran into the house when it hit the ground. I was kind of at peace in this dream which is weird because I’m more scared of spiders than anything.

  • Kelly // Feb 3, 2011 at 11:13 am

    I dreamt that I was sleeping and saw my self wake up and look over and see my husband laying next to me asleep with his back to me. There were hundreds of spiders slowly crawling up my bed, down my walls, and all over my body until they started to crawl in my nose and mouth I couldn’t move. The spiders were all different sizes.

  • Shannon // Feb 2, 2011 at 7:31 am

    In my dream I was lying on a couch watching this very large spider with lots of beautiful colors crawl across the ceiling. In my dream someone in the background told me it was a Scottish spider. The spider then lowered it’s self onto my chest and I gasped and knocked it away.

  • Margie // Jan 20, 2011 at 8:13 am

    I dreamed of driving a car through cobwebs and having to force my way through.

  • betty // Dec 7, 2010 at 4:51 am

    I dreamed that I saw many webs and spiders around on some outdoor furniture. I sat down anyway and let the spiders alone. Under the front arm of my chair there was a sack of many different sized spiders. I just got up from the chair and sat on a nearby bench.
