Bookmark to: StumbleUpon Bookmark to: Facebook DREAM DICTIONARY : This dream dictionary is based upon hundreds of real dreams and has been meticulously researched. However, the only person who can truly identify the cause of a dream is the dreamer. Use the questions and quotes on this page to help you find out what has triggered your dream.

SPIDERS : Spiders are a little like snakes in that they usually refer to something bad in your life. They will usually refer to some situation where you feel trapped or stuck. Perhaps you dislike your job and wish to move to something more interesting. Perhaps you feel stuck in a relationship. Just think of those emotions about being caught in a spiders web. Where do you feel that same sense in real life or been unable to move.

Our dreams studies have shown in practice the symbolic meaning of spiders. Several dreams revolved around the feeling of being trapped. At the time of his spider dream one dreamer felt "trapped in my job". Another had been wanting to do something the next day but was stuck with his work responsibilities. Yet another just felt stuck in his present life.

QUESTIONS to help you make associations(pick the one that makes most sense to you)
- Do you feel stuck in some relationship?
- Are there some responsibilities that are holding you back?
- Do you feel unable to escape some situation or relationship?
- Are you wanting to make a decision but unable to right now?
- Do you feel trapped right now?

KEY WORDS : Stuck, trapping, depression, lack of freedom, responsibilities holding you back, unable to escape, wary(write down some quotes that capture your key feelings on issues that have been dominating your mind. Then see if any of these words could appear in those quotes)

KEY PHRASES(Pick a quote which captures your feelings right now. Think especially of the day before the dream) :
- "I feel trapped in depression"
- "My family will just not let me have my freedom"
- "I don't feel she can ever escape from this situation she has got herself in"
- "This problem is dominating all aspects of my life"
- "I feel trapped in my job"
- "I have not got the freedom to do that because of my responsibilities"
- "I am just stuck here"
- "I feel unable to make a decision"
- "I am trying to entice them"
- "I have finally got my man!"

Below you will see a series of quotes. Each quote represents the meaning of a particular dream(these are all dreams where the meaning is understood totally). For instance one dream may have meant that the dreamer was having trouble at work. In that case the quote may simply be "There is a bad atmosphere at work". Some information is included about which dream symbols were included in the dream(within the squares brackets). Often a sample dream is included which shows you how the dream interpretation was reached.

DREAM ANALYSIS : What is the symbolic meaning of spiders in dreams?

In many cases the spider may refer to a overbearing mother or some other dominant figure who tries to control your life. E.g.

"I keep trying to assert my own independence yet my Mom and all my family seem insistent on trying to control my life"

But in other cases the spider may refer to a set of circumstances where you feel trapped and unable to move.

"My mom has become so ill she may not ever recover enough to ever get out of bed again"[Dream Dictionary - spider dream]

"I feel trapped in my present job and want to move on to something more interesting"[Dream Dictionary - spiders]

"I just cannot escape these problems associated with my housing. The infestation of beetles and the annoying neighbours. I just cannot get away from the noise"[Dream Dictionary - loads of little spiders]

"I am stuck in a situation. I know the consequences both good and bad yet still I am unsure if I want to take the risk"[Dream Dictionary - spiders everywhere]

"I want to set up a new business but feel unable to because I am tied to home and family responsibilities"[Dream Dictionary - spider in garage]

"I am having great difficulties at work. Its starting to affect me in a major way. Its affecting my home life"[Dream Dictionary - spiders everywhere]
-----------------------
SAMPLE DREAM : Dreams generally link to some real issue of relevance to you right now. They may capture your feelings on some health issue, work problem , relationship in difficulty , your feelings about how things are generally going, your plans for the day ahead or some simple paranoia or fear. The dreams featured in this website will try to reduce the dreams meaning to a quote which captures your current feelings on some issue. When studying your own dreams try to think what quotes could capture your own feelings on pressing issues. Think especially of the day before the dream and your thoughts about the day to come.
-----------------------
THE DREAM I dreamed that I was going for a walk to take a break from moving. I came to what looked like a birds nest and in it were hundreds to even thousands of spider eggs. I got to the nest just as the mother spider had finished laying the last of them and almost immediately they began to hatch and there were hundreds of these baby spiders crawling everywhere and the eggs kept on hatching. Even though the baby spiders were crawling all over the place and it seemed chaotic, the mother spider calmly kept them in the nest somehow.

THE REALITY
The dreamer has a very dominant mother. In fact the whole family is very dominant. The dreamer has a difficulty being independent. She has her own ideas and wishes to send a message to her family to stop interfering with her life.

DREAM ANALYSIS
The dream features a spider. Often spiders are seen as symbolic of circumstances where we feel trapped. The spiders web is symbolic of something that you cannot get away from - it entangles you. In this case the dreamer did have to struggle against her family who all tried to influence her and keep her in check. In particular she has a mother who tries to instil the importance of family.

Recently the dreamer has been trying to send some messages out. To suggest that her family backs off and allows her to get on with things in her own way. Clearly as she is moving in the dream she is undergoing change in her life.

In this case the mother spider is mentioned and may even symbolise her own mother. One symbol of importance is the birds nest. Birds can symbolise communication. The land in dreams symbolises the facts about our life. But the birds fly through the air which symbolises change and the ability and freedom to change. They symbolise ideas and proposals about the future. So maybe the birds nest symbolises the dreamers own attempts to communicate her own feelings and wish to change. The infestation of this with spiders eggs symbolises her mothers attempts to resist her own attempts at independence.

Symbolic Meanings
BIRDS NEST : "communication and a wish to fly freely"
MOVING : "The dreamer is in a period of transition"
SPIDER : "Stuck in circumstances - the dreamers own dominant family"
