The Black Widow spider is found in Canada, USA, Europe, Central Asia and China. It is glossy in color and the female has either two bright red spots or the bright red figure of an hour-glass on its underside. These red markings are normally not visible from the top and sometimes the Black Widow spider is mistaken for a different species of spider.

The male is almost half the size of the female and grey or brown in color instead of being black like the female. The marking on the underside of the males is yellow or white in color instead of being red. The poison of the female spider is three times more powerful than of males. Just like other spiders, the Black Widow spider is also very territorial and does not allow even its mate to live near its territory.

Any woman, who is suspected of causing the death of her husband by some means or other, is called a Black Widow. The symbolism is that the woman is wearing black to mourn the death of her husband for which she herself is responsible which is very undesirable.

The symbolism of a Black Widow spider in your thoughts means that you are suffering from a strained relationship with someone in real life, and you are uncertain about its future. It may also mean that you want to end the relationship and get on with your life.

It can also mean that you are resenting the domination of another person of the same sex and want to overcome the influence the person has on you by some act where your intentions of removing the domination are very hostile.

The solitary life of the Black Widow spider which it leads even after finding a mate and then killing it later, signifies the balance of feminine energy which is both destructive and constructive at the same time.

On the other hand, the symbolism can mean that you are feeling yourself entrapped by the power exerted over you by another person and you are desperately trying to find a way out of the situation.

The symbolism can also mean that you feeling vulnerable because of some unresolved problems in your real life and want to sole them at the earliest.
