Jumping Spider

Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

I had a dream last night that a large spider jumped through the air onto my body over and over again. I can remember feeling scared but helpless at the same time.

So what does this mean? A spider can represent fear and originates from primordial times when the spider was commonly poisonous. The spider can be a hidden message that you fear something and someone is upsetting you. In order to decode the meaning of seeing a jumping spider in a dream we need to understand what happens in the wild. The spider is spiritually a symbol of infinity. The spider is a wonderful symbol of setting boundaries and protecting against intruders. When the spider is essentially attacking you, it can suggest that you need to focus on your own goals in life. I also believe that a spider in dreams can also represent “someone” in waking life that cannot be trusted.

If the spider is large and black in color during your dream it can mean that there is a female that is controlling or trying to express themselves. When a male jumping spider finds a female in the wild he must be careful as she may eat him. When mating, the female spider normally sews a sac and then protects her eggs. Therefore, the dream can mean you are trying to "protect" yourself against fear or someone in waking life.
