On the other hand, if the spider in your dream has woven a beautiful web that you admire upon contemplation, it is a sign that the forces of the universe are in your favor to help you in your projects. Lastly, dreaming that the cobwebs are invading your home reveals that the nostalgia frequently takes over your mind, which impedes you from enjoying the present. You are too worried about events of the past and your energy is dispersed in things that cannot be changed.
