Mother Spider is taking care of me
This dream describes the assault on who I was – my security in who I was – from an early age by my parents’ needs and fantasies, and later by the boarding school system. They did a good job. I grew up very concealed from myself. I was colonised by an invading army.
I have 3 house spiders who have recently come to live with me. How they got behind the secondary glazing I do not know. This is me consciously spinning my own webs and connections, that reach far into this world and the other world, instead of being part of the unconscious webs of others, that do not connect and enchant, but entrap. As for the flies, they are my tormenting shadow elements that are transformed by being held in this otherworldly web. Mother Spider is taking care of me.
