The shape of the dream catcher is (generally) a circle because it represents the circle of life and how forces like the sun and moon travel each day and night across the sky.
The dream catcher web catches the bad dreams during the night and disposes of them when the day comes. As for the good dreams, the feathers act as a fluffy, pillow-like ladder that allows them to gently descend upon the sleeping person undisturbed.
There is some contention when it comes to the meaning of the beads that often decorate the dream catcher.
According to some American Indians, the beads symbolize the spider the web weaver itself. Others believe the beads symbolize the good dreams that could not pass through the web, immortalized in the form of sacred charms
