There are three most familiar meanings when we talk about spiders: power of creativity, with the weaving of its own web, aggressiveness and construction from a central point of your universe.

The spider represents the continuous sacrifice, as it lives in constant change between constructions and destructions, an alternation on which the balance of the world depends.

In shamanism she is known as the weaver of the universe, reminding us of build our own paths, for which we are responsible. Its web, on the other hand, is seen by some as a symbol of mental or emotional incarceration, from which we cannot free ourselves.

It is also known for representing the infinite, since it has eight legs and the number eight is a symbol for infinity.

A species that is very linked to the female empowerment is the Black Widow, symbol of femininity, sexual power, cunning, intellect and independence. The species, which is delicate on the outside but always on edge to give a deadly attack, is commonly associated with women who have strong personalities.

Depending on the country, their meanings can be quite different, see some:
