Symbolic of a sorcerer or a demonic spirit, Isa. 59:4-5
To dream of a tarantula is an indication that you have a darker side to your personality.
(Hairy spider; Spider) A tarantula in a dream represents a loathsome and an evil woman who interferes with people’s business and damages their interests, or who destroys what they repair and denies having anything to do with their sufferings. In a dream, this interpretation is based on the legendary nervous disease, formerly believed to be caused by a poisonous bite of a tarantula. Thus, when this harmless hairy spider is seen in a dream, it also could represent a lethal enemy of a fierce sting, scowling, or a despising look.

For example, clothing that is tattered or torn may signify that you feel emotionally shredded by an experience. You may also be expressing a "poor me" attitude.
For the hero, the horse cames him to his mission, perhaps over long distances, and thus it may signify the need to travel. A wild horse can represent unleashed and untamed power. Horses may also trot into your dream to indicate the need to stand your ground in a power struggle.
The quality of water often describes the situation of your emotions. Crystal clear, clean, adulterated, calm mostly provides strong insights about the state of your feelings.
If you own a pet in your dream, your unconscious is drawing your attention to your ability to look after someone or something more vulnerable than yourself. It is also a symbol of unconditional love, and being sensitive to the distress and needs of others. Alternatively, it may also represent an aspect of your character or personality that you feel you should use in a particular situation.
If a woman dreams of baby pets, this may signify her desire for children; if adults of either sex dream of baby pets, it may be relating to their feelings of dependency and how they feel about not being fully in control.
If children dream about pets, this may similarly refer to their feelings of being dependent, but will generally represent their desire for unconditional love from their parents or carers.
If the pet you dream about is familiar to you, the interpretation will very much rest on the nature of your relationship with that particular pet.
Dreams in which you are caring for your pet or shopping for pet supplies show that you are paying attention to your emotional needs or making sure you get what you need. But if a pet appears starving, uncared for and without food or water, this suggests that you are not taking enough care of your own basic needs for affection and attention. Perhaps you are too busy and have forgotten your needs, or perhaps you are so wrapped up in caring for the needs of someone else that you have neglected your own. To dream that you are saving the life of your pet suggests that you are successfully acknowledging certain emotions and characteristics represented by the animal. The dream may also stem from feelings of inadequacy or feeling overwhelmed. Dreams which feature pet shows or competitions can suggest pride in your achievements and emotional confidence, Strange and unusual pet
In general, when dreaming of strange or unusual pets that would most typically be found living in the wild, any negative associations with that particular animal, insect or reptile are replaced by positive associations. For example, the general associations with wild rats are extremely negative but if you dream of a pet rat, the associations are quite different. Pet rats in dreams suggest vulnerability, instinctive intelligence and the caring feelings. In dreams, wild snakes conjure up images of worries, fears and poisonous words and deeds; but if you dream of a pet snake, this can indicate healing and enlightenment.
Any exotic or unusual pet is like a small part of untamed nature and in dreams they can represent personal growth, untapped creative energies and a sense of new-found respect, wonder, curiosity and excitement about life and the adventures it sends your way. Take the Madagascar hissing cockroach, for example, which is kept by some people as a pet. The very name sends a chill up the spine of some people but those people who keep such cockroaches as pets are fascinated at the elaborate rituals these creatures have developed to defend territory, produce offspring or simply to identify themselves. So if a hissing cockroach or any other scary creature-turned-pet such as a tarantula or Bengal tiger appears in your dreams and you are happy to care for it, this is a sign that you are conquering your hidden fears.

but they can also suggest the potential for arrogance.
Animals symbolize the untamed and uncivilized aspects of yourself, so to dream that you are fighting or struggling with your pet suggests that you are trying to reject or hide your need for affection and companionship in waking life. To dream of talking pets suggests that you are listening to some form of superior or mystical knowledge. What the animal is saying to you will usually be some form of wisdom, particularly if the pet is very old, like a tortoise.
Alternatively, a talking pet denotes your potential to be all that you can be.... pet dream meaning
ADVANCED DREAM ANALYSIS HINTS
1: YOU OFTEN FIND ADVICE AT THE END OF A DREAM. Although an entire dream can produce insights, specific suggestions about what to do next often appear at the end. Check how a dream ends to see what may resonate as advice.
DREAM EXAMPLE: THE TARANTULA AND THE GUARD. Faced with rumors that his company was downsizing, a young man feared he might lose his job. He dreamed he was at a train station, lying down in the middle of the tracks as trains zoomed by without harming him. As he lay peacefully on a white blanket, a huge black tarantula above his head caught his eye. Feeling afraid and in danger, the man ran for help. He found a guard and pointed to the tarantula. As they watched, a train came by and crushed the tarantula. The guard turned to the young man and said, “There is no problem now,” and walked away. In the end, the danger disappeared as suddenly as it had arrived. The ending suggested that despite rumors about downsizing, the young man’s job was safe and he was not in danger.
Notice a dream’s final images. If you see someone in a terrible storm yet they find a safe haven, all will be well. Or suppose you witness a car crash, which might be a metaphor of a major clash or fight with a loved one. If at the end of the dream, no one is harmed and all is well, whatever the disagreement, peace will be restored.
2: TIME MARKERS IN DREAMS—WHEN WILL SOMETHING HAPPEN? Dreams often portray probabilities, and an occasional ESP dream gives you a glimpse into the future. Yet such dreams seldom specify when an event will take place. Time markers in dreams are rare, but if they do appear, the predicted timing tends to be accurate.
For example, a woman dreams of meeting her true love. The first question that pops into her head is “When?” and the answer is that no one knows. She may cross paths with a future love in a few months or in a few years; unless a dream provides a time marker, there is no way for her to know. An example of a timing marker would be a dream about a wedding that shows a current friend of the bride, as a bridesmaid. In the dream, the bridesmaid just turned thirty, which tells the prospective bride that she will marry when her friend turns thirty. Or, a time marker may show the date on a wedding announcement. Though rare, keep an eye out for timing markers in dreams.
3: SPOKEN WORDS IN DREAMS ARE OFTEN LITERAL. Dreams are visual metaphors, yet paradoxically, when words are spoken in a dream, their meaning is often literal. If a relative tells you to see a doctor, you should make an appointment. If a friend you have not spoken with for a while says, “I need help” in a dream, check out what is happening. If you dream about someone having surgery and afterward the doctor says, “It is fixed,” you or the loved one will recover. Suppose you feel discouraged in your career and then dream that your boss shakes your hand, saying, “Congratulations on your promotion.” You may want to work hard and persevere.
4: DREAMS OFTEN SHOW LOGIC. Though a lot of dreams may appear disjointed, dreams can demonstrate a high amount of logic as they assess a problem or concern. When a dream has several scenes or parts, see if you can spot a sequential logic. For example, the first part may state the problem, the next might discuss what you have done about the concern or what has not worked, and the latter parts may recommend points to consider or directions that may resolve the issue.
5: SENIORS OFTEN DREAM OF YOUNGER DAYS. Those fortunate enough to reach their eighties and nineties in good shape, often describe dreams that replay the days of their youth. These dreams often portray exact scenes of one’s childhood or their earlier years, in great detail.
Sometimes these dreams of former years contain a message. At other times, they simply replay wondrous moments, cherished memories, or long-forgotten scenes of pain and trauma. As the years catch up, the waking mind dips into the past more often, and as we age, such retrospective thoughts are mirrored in our dreams.
Anecdotal reports by seniors suggest that dreams about their past are not distressing. Revisiting one’s youthful memories often tends to comfort and uplift. Such dreams from one’s early days may also be a way to prepare, ever so slowly, for a new, eternal adventure.
SERIAL DREAMING—DREAMS THAT ARRIVE IN A SERIES
Noticing dreams that arrive in a group or in a sequence indicates that you have turned a corner in mastering dream analysis. Take a breath and have a look at the patterns you may meet in your dreams.
As if watching a television series, look for repetitive dreams that have similar stories or have repeating symbols. You can have a series of dreams about the same topic in a single night. Or, several dreams with the same story may occur over a period of days, weeks, or months. You may even notice symbols or backgrounds that keep cropping up. Take note. Every time a story line, symbol, or background element repeats in a dream, your psyche is working overtime to get your attention. It is up to you to find out why.
THE BOTTOM LINE ABOUT ADVANCED DREAMING
Let your psyche lead the way to amazing dream insights when the time is right. Like a flower that unfolds or an oak tree that grows strong and tall, letting dream understanding proceed at a natural rate is always a good idea.... advanced dream analysis hints dream meaning
