Often, crab spiders that live in gardens and meadows are sometimes white but also yellow and bright pink. White spiders are not dangerous to people in real life, they are in fact poisonous but the venom will not harm us. A user emailed me a few days ago about a white spider featured in their dream so I thought it was important to write a specific dream meaning about the white spider even though I have tons on my website already about spiders in general. I want to firstly say, there are a vast number of people who feel our dreamy state of mind has a “message” from the unknown and this is unexplained. I do agree. Dreams are also believed to showcase unconscious desires and wishes. They even give us some hints about our character and personality. The white spider does indeed look peaceful and holy being the color white you will be glad to know this is a positive dream.
Understanding the Meaning the white spider dream
The white spider can creep you out no doubt about it! The dream of anything white, I feel is an omen from god, I do feel that the white spider is an omen of spiritual protection from negative activities in the waking world. To be chased by a white spider or being stuck in a big spider web could mean you are struggling with coming to terms with something important in life. If you see a white spider in real life this is also a great omen. Against theorists in the spiritual realm I believe that dark black spiders represent people that should not be trusted in my opinion. Seeing wriggly arthropods can mean several things depending on the details of the dream.
Cultural beliefs associated with the color white
The color white in dreams is the symbol of peace. For example, we think of white doves are a sign of peace. White is significantly used to portray many principles and values like elegance, innocence, purity, perfection, cleanliness, and dignity along with peace. This representation for the color white is witnessed prominently in Western culture. In many countries, white is also correlated with Angels, time and good health.
It is also related to embarking upon new beginnings and leaving behind the old unwanted things in life. Giving a fresh perspective to life is often glorified using white. White also refers to giving closure to the past mistakes that we make and a clean slate which needs you to redefine yourself.
For the people residing in the Eastern part of the globe, in Asian countries like China and Korea white is a sign for mourning and death. It is seen as a mark for bad luck.
So the presence of this color in your dream can suggest that your unconscious mind has a message for you to not compromise with your dignity and integrity in any persuasive situation. It is also said to be an indication for the hope of a new beginning when you find yourself locked in a problem or feeling rather stuck in an unwanted relationship.
