symbolism of the spider

Updated: Jun 30, 2021

The spider - feared by many, understood by few. I feel like the spider gets a bad rap. It might seem scary with all of its crawly legs hanging out of it’s tiny body. I guess our ancestors had to fear it for a reason. Due to, you know, poisonous spiders. But things have become wildly domestic since our caveman ancestors. The spiders we now encounter are usually not deadly, at least I am speaking for places in the more Western hemisphere of the planet. So, instead of fearing the spider when we see it, maybe we could look at it like an omen, a sign of good luck.
