Weaving is one of the strongest spiritual images there is. In most cultures there is an image of our fate being woven in a particular pattern. We are not supposed to be in control of that pattern, but must accept that the gods or God know what is best. Weaving is taken to signify life itself and often symbolizes our attitude to the way we run our lives. The fabric of our emotions is what we have to work with; the patterns that we weave consist of our experiences as we go through life. Weaving is a very basic symbol and suggests the need to take responsibility for our own lives. Handicrafts of any sort symbolize our hold on life and on the situations around us. To make a mistake in weaving suggests that we need to take a situation back to its roots and rework it. You might also like to consult the entries for God/Gods, Knitting and Web.
