Eww! Gross! This is a common response most folks have upon waking up from a dream about snakes and/or spiders. Or perhaps some people may think it’s awesome, especially a little boy or if they’re into reptiles and insects. These two symbols seem to baffle many of why they would dream about spiders and snakes; however, it’s really quite common which will be showcased on this blog.
After writing my latest column for In the Dreamtime at Bellesprit Magazine, where a mother asked what her son’s recurring dreams meant on this topic, I wondered how many columns I’ve written regarding snakes and spiders. Therefore, I started going through my desktop file folder for my dreamtime columns that are listed in alphabetical order by year and month. By the time I reached the month of February, I already had three columns! There’s probably more, but I’ve been a columnist since 2013, and honestly, I was too lazy to continue looking.
The following four In the Dreamtime columns and three blog posts from this website validate the fact of how common the dream symbols of spider and snakes are.
