I mainly just think they are kind of creepy. A diligent and intelligent predator with very strong eyesight. Hard to brush off once they are crawling on you. And nearly impossible to escape their web (or clean it off of you, if you are a human) once entangled in it.
I'm constantly aware of the need to be savvy these days. The need to stay skilled and informed and prepared, the need to figure things out for myself, and by myself, as much as possible, lest I get tricked.
I am capable of making well-thought-out plans when attention-span and energy allows. But as far as a spider's eyesight is concerned, I, in comparison, have very poor eyesight at a literal physical level even for a human. But I also have trouble "seeing" circumstances, goals, priorities, and possibilities in proportion and in perspective, both in planning and when they come up randomly. So I'm not able to be as ruthlessly consistent as a spider is.
Eventually, there is nothing out there. Everything is within us.
I have yet to fully embrace the postmodern existential solipsism taken up by many contemporary occult self-help teachings. But Ernst's interpretation of LAs and RA/KE seems to incorporate it, in a way, as a foundational reference, so I am willing to suspend judgment for a few years as it seems to work for many. In saying that, I'm not trying to be insulting or dismissive, but this was never meant to be a cult, so if skepticism and debate ever come up, it might just be productive or even fun. I have much more to learn and practice.
In native American traditions the spider is related to the fire element. The fire is, especially explicit in the maya tradition, seen as a weaver. The fire brings people together and creates relations. So: weaving, bringing together, creating social networks.
Then, if it´s a poisonous spider that may add another flavour to it, of course, then it may be a warning.
