Dreaming of black spiders

Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

Dreaming of black spiders will generally mean you are experiencing isolation.

To dream of the color black, and equally, to dream of spiders, will both interdependently mean that you are experiencing disapproval or separation. The black color universally signifies emptiness and mourning. While the spider will draw consciousness to your feelings of being ignored or shut out. Spiders are commonly known to form a web, thus implying on a less obvious level how you may be struggling with the "web of people around us." In this specific instance referring to black spiders, the dream interpretation will veer more towards femininity or the female relationships you have in your life, it can either suggest you are feeling reduced by them; or how you may have overcome the feelings of being reduced.

In this dream:

  • Being chased by a black spider.
  • Have many black spiders crawling on you.
  • Seeing a dead black spider.
  • Killing a black spider.
  • Holding a black spider.
  • Dreaming that you are a black spider.


  • You are killing a spider yourself (only in some cases).
  • You are unbothered by the spider.
  • You are able to make the spider disappeared.
  • You feel calm and comfortable in the spider’s presence.

Dreaming of black spiders will often be a sign that you are feeling down or running away from problems in a relationship. These signs come in different forms and different intensities which can sometimes become very stressful or hard to shake off. Firstly, seeing a black spider directly in front of you will suggest you are yourself confronted with an issue in your real life. Secondly, you might be running away from a spider, or many spiders. This denotes that you are running away from your problems, and not confronting them which is suggested for mental well being. Thirdly, if any of your problems have been too overbearing, and you cannot run away from them anymore, this will result in an usually emotional disturbing experience while dreaming. This could manifest in the "black spider" dream and come in the form of black spiders crawling all over you. To have this experience can be very scary, you should take note of this and realize it is no longer better to run away from your problems. Lastly, to see a dead black spider, or to kill a black spider in your dreams, will generally mean that you have either overcome and successfully confronted your issue(s); or are about to experience more.

Yes, black spiders are scary, but they should not always be feared! If you consider yourself more creatively inclined. Then seeing a spider spinning his/her web could mean an expansion in your career. Although, if you are bitten by this spider, it could mean that you are struggling with certain female relationships in your workplace. This web can mean expansion, but it can also mean feeling glued down or trapped in something you’d like to be rid of. You, as the dreamer, will need to understand what is going on in your life to have experienced these visions.

What about the color black?

Blackness can also represent depression. It is common to see this darkness in your dreams, but know that it does not mean you are depressed yourself, it may just mean a part of you feels reduced or lacking something and will take the time to figure out. I am sorry to say, if you are feeling depressed, lonely and isolated, possibly abandoned or confronted with a situation you feel stuck in, be sure not to run away from the black spider dream may occur. It is strongly advised that you take action and do whatever is right for you, and approach your problems head on. Be sure to take advice from others around you who you trust, as these people have invaluable advice they'd like to share.

Feelings associated with black spiders in your dream:

Depression, difficulties in life, new beginnings, being worried about others and a new start.
