Spider Spirit Animal Symbolism and Guidance

The spider is considered a powerful totem and spirit animal in many cultures, especially the Native American culture. It's believed that the spider appears to you to offer guidance and to either confirm or correct your life path.

Message and Meanings

The symbolism of the spider is a feminine energy that is mysterious. This spirit animal imbues patience, intuition, nurturing, creativity, self-exploration, and emotional/spiritual growth to the recipient. The spider spirit meaning and message is one of looking beyond the physical to gain better perspective of your current circumstances.

Call for Introspection

The spider is a teacher and mentor if you allow yourself to be open to this animal spirit's guidance. The first lesson the spider brings to you is one of introspection. You are challenged with delving deep into your psyche/soul to examine all the nooks and crannies. The spider wants you to pull anything hidden into the light so you can fully examine it, reconcile it and make peace with it so you can be released of its negative control, such as negative memories, emotions, thoughts, etc.

The Darker Side of Self

The spider is a disruptor of preconceived ideas and illusions of self. You may be asked by this spirit animal guide to delve deep into those darker recesses of yourself to eradicate self-imposed limitations. These may be ideological precepts, or your own misunderstandings about relationships, society or life in general.

The Spider Guides From Dark to Light

However painful it may be, the purpose is to move through the darkness and back into the light a stronger, freer and more open person who can embrace life and all the challenges life presents to you. It's through facing self and challenges that you'll gain your higher self and can proceed in spiritual growth and development.

Confirmation You're on the Right Path

Spiders are catalysts for creativity and can guide you toward your path of destiny. If the spider has appeared to you while you're contemplating or starting a new career, new relationship, project, or other endeavor, then it is regarded as confirmation you are on the right path.

Weaving a Path for Your Life

The spider is the ultimate weaver and if the spider is one of your spirit guiding animals, then you can rely upon its ability to weave your path to achieve your destiny. It requires an open mind on your part and a willing spirit to accept the guidance of your spirit animal guide. The spider may come to you in dreams or during meditations with insights and revelations about challenges you may be facing.

Message to Indulge in Creative Activities

The spider spirit message may be one of creativity. If your life has become stagnant with routine and the mundane, the spider has appeared to remind you of the well-spring of self-fulfillment creativity offers. Cast off the doldrums and embrace a surge of creative energies. Choose a creative endeavor and pursue it whole heartedly.

Reminder to Use All Senses

The spider reminds you that even if you would have six or eight eyes like it does, this abundance of eyes doesn't mean you have excellent vision. Just as the spider can't see that well, you may be suffering from a lack of vision. The spider inspires you to see your life through a different set of lenses and to take a 360° perspective of all situations you face.

Rely on Your Intuition

The spider must rely upon its other senses in order to live and catch its prey, especially its sense of touch. When the spider enters your life, it brings a message of using all of your senses. This is especially true for those with intuitive and psychic abilities. Like the spider, you are guided to trust your instincts and intuition instead of the things you may or may not see.

How to Know a Spider Is Your Spirit Animal

There are several ways you can determine that the spider is your spirit animal. The most obvious way is when the spider enters your dreams. Many spirit animals reveal themselves through dreams, especially when they need to introduce themselves as your spirit guide.

Repeat Appearances

Another way that you may realize that the spider is one of your spirit animals is when it continuously appears to you. If a spider crawls across your laptop screen, walks across your windshield, sits by the bathtub while you're soaking, and appears on your patio chair, it's time to take the hint that the spider is attempting to communicate with you. All you need to do is pay attention. However, if you don't feel you've met any of your animal spirit guides, you can always take steps to summon them.

Spider Spirit Animal Messages Can Guide You

The spider spirit animal has many messages and symbolizes various things within your life. By learning patience and listening to the wisdom your spider spirit animal wants to impart, you can discover a new spiritual dimension in your life.
