Spider Symbol

  • Pay attention to your surroundings. Is there something that you see more times then others? Does it feel unusual to keep seeing the exact, same thing?

    My most recent is a spider that keeps landing somewhere on me. Why the spirits chose this particular creature to speak to me I am not sure. I am scared to death of those things!!! 

    For the past two weeks, every time I'd go to my soulmates house a yellowish spider would land on me. After the 3rd time back to back he insisted that I look it up to see what it means. But I am hardheaded and did not.

    So the spider began to follow me home. I would see it at his house and as soon as I got to my front door there was that spider...again! (Staulked by spiders lol). Anyway, my soul mate knows me and that I procrastinate so HE DID it for me. This is what it means...


    Spider Symbolism

    The Spider is an ancient symbol of mystery, power and growth.

    We take our first lesson from the ancient symbol of the Spider by contemplating its web.

    Just as the Spider weaves a web, so too must we weave our own lives. The Spider symbolmeaning here serves as a reminder that our choices construct our lives. When the Spider appears to us, it is a message to be mindful of the choices we are making - and ask ourselves:


    Questions The Spider Asks of Us

    • How are my choices affecting my life?
    • How can my choices improve my life?
    • How are my choices affecting others in my life?


    Not only do Spiders and their webs draw attention to our life choices, they also give us an overview of how we can manipulate our thinking in order to construct the life we wish to live.

    Spiders do this by calling our awareness to the amazing construction of their webs. Fully functional, practical, and ingenious in design - Spider webs serve as homes, food storage, egg incubators - seemingly limitless in their functionality.

    When we consider this ingenious diversity, we can also consider the web-like construct of our own lives. How are we designing the most effective life?

    When we see our decisions, choices and actions as far-reaching, effective tools in life - we can see how we weave a web that can either serve us or enslave us. The Spider symbol meaning beckons us to be mindful of our behaviors - be smart about the life we weave for ourselves.

    We can derive more Spider symbol meaning when we consider certain subtle characteristics that represent ancient symbols of infinity.

    The infinity symbol meanings occur when we consider most Spiders have eight eyes and all have eight legs. The number eight is also a symbol of infinity or lemniscate (an eight turned on its side). Also, the vibrational frequency indicates the meaning of number eight involves cycles, passage of time, and evolution.

    In Native American symbolism, the Spider is a symbol of protection against torrential storms. In yet other Native American lore accounts, the Spider (personified as the Grandmother) was the teacher and protector of esoteric wisdom.

    The meaning of Spider in India is associated with Maya. The term Maya comes from the Sanskrit root "Ma" which means no form or limit. The term Maya describes the illusory nature of appearances. The Spider’s association with Maya brings about the understanding that not all things are as they appear to be.

    The Spider symbol meaning in Egypt, is akin to Neith, a complex deity usually depicted with arrows as she is associated with hunting. Along with hunting, she is also associated with the creation, specifically the process of recreation in the dawning and dusking of each day. Neith is also a weaver, and is often shown with a shuttle in her hand (a tool used for weaving). It is this activity that gains her association with the Spider.
