Creepy Crawlies make great totems

Are you afraid of that creepy crawly spider that makes its way into your space? Give the little guy a chance, perhaps it is a magical animal totem with a message. 

"Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect." 
~Chief Seattle

Spider is the weaver of stories, dreams, illusions, fate. Spider is often seen as linking past to future.

You have a talent for writing, and can weave words in creative ways that can often affect others in deep ways. Spider is guardian of all ancient languages and alphabets. Many attribute the very first letters to the patterns and angles formed by a spider's web.  Spider is considered to be the teacher of languages and the magic of writing - it may be time to write creatively - without the constraints of form, tradition or habit.

They are associated often with the number 8 and are said to be the keepers of the internal plan of creation. The spider is considered to be associated with the Earth element. Several American Indian tribes tell the story of Grandmother Spider. She is said to have spun the web of life and that all living creatures, beasts, and humans are interconnected through her web. Every life touches another via the intricate, complicated, interwoven threads.
