Spiders are among the most patient and long-suffering of all animal spirit guides. They carefully weave a web and then wait for their prey to come to them. Each strand of Spider’s web connects to another, creating a whole, safe space in which you can feed your spirit. Spider knows, however, that anything worth doing is worth doing correctly.


Spider bears a message about light, darkness, and the delicate balance between the two. We as humans sometimes forget there is a special beauty and power to the shadow self. By understanding that side of our being, we come to embrace the light all the more fervently.


No one is perfect. Spider lets you examine your imperfections from a different perspective – one focused on creating transformation from within. Native Americans see Spider as a creator and a symbol of the divine Feminine aspect. This creative energy is central to Spider’s lessons.Planning and taking your time with a heartfelt project is the key to success. Spider says, “Haste makes waste. Go slow and wait for the right time.” As you do, you’ll achieve a greater understanding of all your aptitudes and traits and pull them together as a cohesive whole.


A Spider’s web represents our interconnection with Divine perfection within the universe. What’s more, Spider’s meaning reminds us to reflect on how we have the resources to “catch” what we need and attain our dreams.


Often, we humans try to hold on to what we create, but Spider reminds us we can be free to create, destroy and recreate. This reinforces Spider’s meaning in connection to the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth.


You may also be reminded by Spider to have faith in your gifts. You may not need to hold on to what’s comfortable. Sometimes we get used to things that aren’t really in our best interest. Let go and refine what you create.
