The dreamer’s son is leaving home to study mechanical engineering. She is having a hard time letting go.
“I need some help with this one! I dreamed that there were mechanical spiders under my skin, and they hurt somewhat, so I would pick them out through my skin. They were made of metal, and eventually they turned to spikes as I pulled them out. As I pulled them, my skin started stretching and was almost like chicken skin at that point. I have tried to figure this out, one point being my son is starting mechanical engineering in Sept and he and I are super close. Anyone have some ideas?”
All these bugs under your skin may reflect how bothered or uneasy you are by him leaving. His departure has gotten to you. The mechanical nature of the spiders may symbolize the mechanical engineering that he is studying and the spiders symbolize how this situation traps you from ever being able to care or control him again.
The dream is probably just a sign that you are having trouble letting go.
