I am drawn to what you could call spiritual things. I believe in energies flowing around you that can tell you about what’s happening to you and give some advice for the future.
It’s no wonder I enjoy so much the posts about spirit animals by my dear friend Rhapsody Bohéme. Thanks to her, I started paying attention and was visited by my first animal: a spider!
As I explained in my post about the Tarot reading I had done for me, it can’t tell you a black and white future but it’s great guidance on how to act to get the best out of it.
I am not scared of spiders so I was not frightened when I found one leisurely walking on my leg, while I was reading on the swing in my garden. Usually there are loads of them around at this time of year but they have been missing.
My visitor was not big but neither was tiny. I stopped reading and observed her. She walked a little (still on my leg), stopped and adopted a defensive position by raising her front legs and, after checking everything was fine, continued walking. She did this three times until she reached the floor and went away.
I found her behaviour most unusual and searched for ‘spider spirit animal’ straight away. Bingo! It was there!
She is very feminine (hence the she) and related to creativity. She reminds you to not ignore your ideas and dreams and to find balance between past and future. Most of all, she says you weave your own web in life, something I deeply believe in.
Like my tarot reader says, I’ll give you the weather forecast. It’s up to you if you take an umbrella.
Of course I checked with Rhapsody if I had interpreted it correctly. Yes!
Today, at work, I was visited by another spider. A little one, this time. She started from the right corner of my desk, walking purposely towards the left. I had loads of parts, tools and papers all over, but she stayed on her path. There were easier routes but she didn’t want them. I admired her as she walked over every obstacle, never wavering. When she reached the left side, she disappeared down somewhere.
If that’s not a message, I don’t know what is.
