Spiritual Aspect of Spiders in the House

Myths & Legends

Spiders are interesting species. The illustration of these arachnids has been seen in many religions and mythologies throughout the world without taking into account that they’re “hideous,” “disgusting,” “nuisance” (which’s not true at all!).

Therefore, ancient writings, spiders’ artifacts, and stories are passed around in a culture orally.

The spider, as a symbol, represents a virtue: the persistence displayed by the endless spinning of the Web that is the house but also the arms of the arachnids.

The desire to finish the niggling job is another characteristic of this species.

Very detailed math and geometric algorithm appear to weave the web of the spider, with the initial geoglyphic pattern inspired by spider webs.

This arachnid, however, symbolizes fear most frequently for its potentially lethal venom.

The remains of the Egyptians, synonymous with goddess Neith – who wove the yarns of the destiny; later, Ishtar called in faith, Athens – belong to the Greeks, and then Minerva to the Romans, although these deities produced many features as well. In mythology, the spider appeared in depictions of the Egyptian houses.


As we walk into the continent of Africa, we will encounter the spider called Anansi, a god who enjoys jokes; this is at least how the native folklore depicts it.

The name Anansi is called Aunt Nancy in West Africa. This god is a fable that reveals different values in local tales.

In South America, the spider was influenced by the Nazca culture (flowered from approximately 100 BC to 800 AD).

Arachnids were also notable animals in Peru since indigenous cultures deeply valued nature and depicted it in various ways.
