Spider's unique place in nature brings awareness of the ability to weave the threads of our own lives, expansively and creatively. Because of her relative small size and limited scope of territory, Spider increases her world by spinning a web to catch the unwary fly. The spider, the web and the fly - each uniquely connected.

Native Americans speak of a great web that binds all creation together and of Spider's weaving the primordial alphabet. One story tells of Grandmother Spider bringing fire to the world in a basket she weaves.

Spider reminds us that we create our own world. We can celebrate the possibilities and honor the interconnectedness of all things, great and small.
