An ancient symbol for weaving, and thus for creativity.
The dreamer may be going through a rough time in life, and need to find a creative solution to resolve the situation. Dreaming of a spider can be reassuring: You have it in you to find the solution.
If the spider seems threatening, or the web too intricate, the message is that you are complicating things unnecessarily and need to simplify your life.
If you are an artist of any kind, Spider heralds a rush of creative activity that could point you in a new career direction.
A sign of strength and resiliency. Whatever hard times the dreamer is going through now, she has what it takes to get through them.
