Spiders are one of the most feared creatures on the planet, and they can represent quite a few things by way of dreams. If you have a fear of spiders and dream they’re around, this could reflect fears and worries in your real life. If the spider bites you in the dream, this can show that you feel attacked or victimized.

Dreams about being chased tend to be a little bit more literal, and are often believed to reflect that you are running away from real-life problems, which is, of course, never a good thing. It might also suggest that the responsibilities of life are getting too much for you; either way, you need to address these problems.

So many of us would love to be able to fly if we had the opportunity, and for good reason; it’s associated with power and freedom. If you dream about flying, it could be a sign that you feel empowered and that you are capable of overcoming obstacles. But it could also mean that you are trying to escape from something.

Being locked up

This one is pretty clear, it could be a sign that you feel trapped or imprisoned by a particular person, place, or situation. It can reflect a fear of the unknown and apprehension about the future, and it can also suggest that you need to have a little more freedom and independence in your life as well.

It should be noted that dream cheating is not the same as actual cheating, but it’s important to understand what this kind of dream is telling you.
