The Spiderweb Effect implies that all things originate from a central source, spiral out in a matrix, grid, lattice, or web, following the same geometric design to create realities. If something affects one part of the web, it affects everything.

She who sits at the great galactic center
She is a grandmother figure who is a link between the past and the future and who brought people the gift of fire. Some tribes believed the spider was the weaver who created the world and saw her as a symbol of creative female energy.
Spider is sacred to the Maya - known as the Weaver of Illusion.

Spiders are weavers and tricksters. They symbolize fate, female energy, creative energy, female energy, wisdom, creativity, new life, entanglement, caution, divine inspiration, starting a project, becoming pregnant, being industrious, warning signals, illusions. They are connected to Ishtar, Atargatis, Athene, the Fates, the Norns, Holda, Inktomi, Kokyangwuti, Tsitsicnako and Sussistanako and Neith.
A lot of the symbolism associated with Spider can be seen in her form. Her body is made up roughly of a figure eight which, laid on it's side, is the symbol for infinity. Infinity is like the wheel of life, constantly flowing in a continuous cycle from one circle to the other. She is also associated with death and rebirth, not only with the shape of her body but with the eating of the male after mating. She is both a feminine and lunar energy. Her constant building of new webs have been tied by some to the waxing and waning of the moon. The glistening web also has very strong symbology, signifying the tapestry of the universe and the infinite possibilities of creation.
It is also believed the first true alphabet was formed from the patterns and angles in Spiderwebs which has her considered the teacher of language and writing. This makes her a strong guide for those who use symbols and writing in performing magic.
The building of a web is linked to that of creation. When building a web, the orb spider just shoots her silk into the wind. If the breeze carries it to a spot where it sticks, her first bridge has now been formed. She then reinforces it with a second line and builds her frame.
Spiders are very delicate and gentle creatures. If you held a tarantula while standing and dropped it, the fall would break her and she would die. Most spiders are only aggressive when threatened and many are very shy, avoiding confrontations. They combine gentleness and strength with balance to survive.
Spiders strongest lesson is that of fate. She encourages us to weave our dreams into reality because she knows the mind is a powerful thing. She teaches us we create our own destiny because the past and future are linked. What we decide to take from our experiences can either be an aid or obstacle in the future and we weave our path by every action. Everything you do now affects your future encounters.
She also poses a warning to avoid getting locked into barriers created by society. Our beliefs, behavior and views on ourselves should come from us, not other people. This is important because these things can limit our possibilities short of their potential.
Balance is another lesson of this spiritual creature. She teaches us to keep balance in every aspect of our lives - past and future, physical and spiritual, feminine and masculine, etc.
