I had the most amazing dream last night about spiders! I am afraid of spiders but this dream was interesting. The spiders were falling out of the bottom of my pant legs and they didn't look like spiders but black flat cedar leaves. Then they would get up and crawl out from me going in all directions. I wasn't afraid. So I started shaking my pants and more kept falling out. I woke up still not afraid and the coyotes were howling! And before the spiders I was being given symbols of all kinds.
Here is what I found about spider guides.
Spider, Power Animal, Symbol of Creation, Weaving our Realities, Infinity, Balance, Past, Present and Future
By Ina Woolcott
Spiders gifts include - creativity and weavers of fate, balance between past and future, physical and spirit, male and female. Spider is strength and gentleness combined, they awaken creative sensibilities, they are the keepers of the primordial alphabet and can teach you how to write creatively. Their bodies are shaped like the number 8 and they have 8 legs, symbolising infinite possibilities of creation. The 8 legs represent the 4 winds of change and the 4 directions of the medicine wheel.
Spider weaves her web, we weave our realities. Spider reminds us that we create many of the situations in our lives. Spiders have the extraordinary capability of creating, weaving and spinning their own webs. This ability shows and teaches us the gift of creation. We have the power to create what happens in our lives - to us and to others. The choices we make coupled with our attitude - very powerful stuff. You may also realise that the webs you weave need not be sources of entanglement, but a network of roads to travel.
Spiders are actually very delicate, embodying the energy of gentleness, and generally aren’t aggressive unless defending their lives. Moving forward whatever the situation, with a gentle strength, is a skill that often needs to be learned by those with this power animal.
Spider's message to you is that you are an infinite being who will continue to weave patterns of life and living throughout time.
