Spiders are similar to Insectsin that they can portray the unseen, yet destructive tendency to allow something to bug you without addressing it. Since spiders make webs, they are a clear portrayal of how you weave your own difficulty through insecurity or fear. Lots of tiny spiders can symbolize how whatever is festering below the surface seems out of your ability to control. To see one or a few large spiders can represent a larger issue created by getting caught up in a type of web or the dynamics of others. Spider dreams are a call to acknowledge a sense of hiding or entrapment that is stunting you or your ability to be truthfulness, since the spider is symbolizing your behavior too. Dreams often use symbols that are the most frightening to us simply to wake us to our own self destructive behavior.
