The fear of spiders is common among people and can bring out many a panic attack. On the ceiling or even in the attic, the probability is rather high that you could discover such. Finding cobwebs logically suggest that their inhabitant, the spider can not be far.

In scary movies they usually appear in connection with bats or even in underground caves. Ghost trains also use cobweb decos to make the environment seem a bit spooky, and it's also a popular decorating motif at Halloween parties.

What they express is further explained here.

General dream interpretation

Cobwebs, according to the general dream interpretation, stands as a positive sign. It is primarily related to professional connections of the dreamer. This dream image predicts that it will bring very pleasing progress. The subject will get a chance to prove his skills and a good prospect of a steep professional career would be ensured. All planned undertakings in the near future will be crowned with success.

In other cases, however, cobwebs in a dream are also a warning, which further indicates that people in the vicinity have malicious intentions and are up to something. There are people who pretend to act for the benefit of the person, but the truth is quite different. Because they are only out for their own benefit. Perhaps this person is trying to tease out some important information with a hypocritical manner. So caution is advised and some mistrust might be healthier at the moment when it comes to familiar things and who to tell what to. Revealing everything to the "wrong" people could backfire.

If one destroys cobwebs in a dream for whatever reason, this dream event augurs that one should also pay attention. In that case there could be a breach of friendship, but it comes from the dreamer himself. The carelessness and rudeness, which the dreamer sometimes shows, makes some fellow men shrink back, because one feels rejected.

Psychological dream interpretation

According to psychoanalytical principles of interpretation, cobwebs are related to social interpersonal contacts. Strictly speaking, they express here a constricting relationship in which the dreamer has no air to breathe and consequently his further development is inhibited. Behind this is usually the relationship with one's mother, which shapes us so strongly that it can have an influence on our whole life and profoundly inhibits self-development.

According to the psychological dream interpretation, if you remove the cobwebs in a room in a dream, it augurs that you are struggling with too many trifles and making life difficult unnecessarily. The focus of the dreamer should now be directed to important things instead.

Spiritual dream interpretation

In the spiritual point of view, cobwebs represent the aspiration of the dreamer to relax in his inner home or to arrive at his inner center.
