The Meaning of Snake Dreams

Snakes commonly symbolize fear or transformation. Dreaming of a snake is a sign that you are afraid of something in your waking life, or it could be a forewarning of changes to come. Whether you dream about a snake in your house or getting bitten by a snake, the meaning behind the dream depends on your personal real-life situation. Some common meanings of snakes include: fear, transformation, sex, evil, or knowledge. Keep in mind too that different cultures and religions ascribe different symbolic meanings to snakes.

In this article, I will discuss some common meanings behind dreams about snakes. Each dreamer needs to find his or her own personal meaning among the common observations.

How to Interpret Dreams About Snakes

Dreaming of a snake can be either a positive or negative symbol. When analyzing your dream think about:

  • What the snake was doing
  • Who was in the dream
  • Your feelings and attitude during the dream

Common Symbolic Meanings of Snakes

Fear: You are afraid of something or someone in your waking life—maybe you're too scared of facing commitment, your boss, or a tough situation. Dreaming of a snake could be a wakeup call for you to face your fears.

Growth and Renewal: Snakes often represent a change in life or renewal. If your life is troublesome, then dreaming about a snake may be how your unconscious mind is helping you come to terms with your struggles.

Unconscious Anxieties: Snakes will appear in dreams as long as your emotions are out of whack. They represent the things cause stress, sadness, or anger.

Transcendence: A snake may also be a symbol of transcending into a higher level of consciousness.

Phallic Symbol: The snake could be a phallic symbol. Are you suppressing your sexual needs? Are you experiencing feelings of impotence? A snake dream may be pointing to sexual deficits or urges.

Knowledge and Wisdom: In some Native American or Asian cultures, snakes represent wisdom. Dreaming of a snake could mean that there is knowledge you are seeking or answers you are trying to find.

Repressed Desires: A snake could also represent your innermost desires. If the snake bites you in your dream, it may be a wakeup call to fulfill those desires.

What Does Dreaming About a Snake Bite Mean?

Dreaming about a snake bite is a warning sign about a toxic person or challenging situation that could harm you, or your unconscious is trying to send you a wake-up call to take action with something. Something from your past or in your present is bothering you, and you're consciously or unconsciously ignoring it. It may also represent the fact that you feel paralyzed or trapped in your current situation. Perhaps there's something you want to do, but can't find the solution for it or the courage to do it.

In a positive light, a snake bite could also be a symbol that something in your life is about to change dramatically. If you dream about a snake bitting you on the leg or on the foot, then your unconscious is predicting a major transformation. Your feet represents balance and getting bitten in the foot might be a foretelling of changes to come.

A snake attack is usually a sign of inner turmoil for the dreamer.

Dreaming of a Black Snake

Dreaming of a black snake means there is something dark and ominous lurking in your life. It could either be a sign that you should be cautious of potential danger or it is your subconscious dealing with the depression or sadness that you experience in your waking life. Perhaps there is some emotional distress that you are still dealing with subconsciously (maybe you haven't gotten over an ex or you are harboring feelings of guilt and regret). Seeing a black snake is a usually sign of a bad relationship or energy in your life, but it could also be a financial warning. Be cautious of your finances and the people around you.

Seeing a Red Snake in Your Dreams

A red snake signifies intense passion, possibly sexual passion. It may also be a warning of potential danger. If you see a red snake, examine your waking life and see if there is anything your dream may be alerting you to.

Dreaming About a Snake in Your House or Bed

If you dream about a snake in your house, you first need to think about what your house might represent. It could quite literally mean your house, but it can also symbolize your family, your responsibilities, your finances, or the most private parts of your mind. Dreaming about a snake in your house could mean one of the following:

  • You have a problem in your family. You may be having a fight with one of your children, or you suspect your spouse is being unfaithful.
  • If you do not live with your family, the snake may represent your bad feelings toward a roommate or landlord.
  • You're having financial problems.
  • You're trying to move or you are unhappy in your current house.

Dreaming of Being Chased by a Snake

When you dream about being chased by a snake, you likely feel fear and panic. It means that there is something or someone in your waking life you are trying to avoid or escape from. These feelings could be brought on because:

  • You are avoiding an unpleasant situation and your unconscious mind expects you to face it. Perhaps you're been avoiding a task at work, a necessary medical procedure, or something else that needs to be done.
  • You want to speak your mind, but you're holding back so as not to hurt anyone. For example, you've been meaning to break things off with your romantic partner and are worried about their reaction.
  • You are caught in a situation with very few options and have difficult choices to make. In other words, you feel trapped.

A snake eating its tail is a symbol of eternity.

Dreaming About Dead Snakes

Dead snakes are positive in dreams. Seeing a dead snake symbolizes the end of deceit, temptation, or fear. It signals that there will be change or new beginnings. Think about what the snake represents in you waking life. Seeing a dead snake means that whatever that snake represents in real life will come to an end. If you kill the snake, then you are overcoming or defeating an issue that the snake represents.

Killing Snakes in Your Dream

A dream about killing snakes is a positive dream. It means you can overcome your fears, defeat challenges, and advance ahead on a smoother, less-challenging path. If you feel satisfaction after killing the snake, then there is something in your waking life you need to overcome in order to feel fulfilled. If you feel guilt, then maybe there is a dilemma that you want to get rid of that is not that easy to resolve. Killing a snake in your dream represents a struggle in your waking life that you need to face.

What does a dream about a yellow, red, or black snake mean?
What does a dream about a yellow, red, or black snake mean? | Source

Yellow Snakes

A yellow snake represents your inner light—your intuition, wisdom, and intellectual abilities. Dreaming of a yellow snake means your intuition is trying to guide you towards an answer to something. If there is a problem in your waking life, listen to your gut.

Dreaming of Snakes While Pregnant

Seeing a snake in your dreams while pregnant is a sign of good luck. It means you'll have a healthy pregnancy. The color of the snake could also represent a number of different meanings:

  • If you see a black snake while pregnant, you are having a baby boy.
  • A white snake means you are carrying a baby girl.
  • A red snake means luck, or that someone close to you will get engaged or married.
  • A green snake represents health and fertility.

Dreaming of Multiple Snakes

If you see a lot of snakes in your dream, then it is a symbol of abundance. Inside you, there is an overflowing fountain of energy that you have not tapped into. This may be sexual energy or wisdom. If you feel frightened by the snakes, then the dream is a sign that something in you waking life is overwhelming you.

Venomous Snake

Many dream interpreters believe that the snake represents man because of its phallic features. Seeing a venomous snake is a warning sign that there is perhaps a dangerous man in your life, or you are the dangerous man. Dreaming of a poisonous snake is a sign that you should be careful of toxic male behavior or check your own behavior.

Two-Headed Snake

Dreaming of a two-headed snake represents suppressed fears and complications in the dreamer's waking life. Seeing a two-headed snake means you're being pulled in two different directions or that your actions are counterproductive. This is a sign that you should reexamine your problems and make stronger, more confident decisions in order to move forward.

Boa Constrictor

Seeing a boa constrictor means you feel repressed. You are suffocating—most likely from a romantic or sexual relationship. It could also represent your ambition or your desire to overpower someone.

The Meaning of Dreams About Snakes in Islam

In Islam, the snake is considered a vicious creature and represents oncoming trouble or unknown danger. If in a dream you are being chased by snakes, get bitten by snakes, or have snakes in your house, then something horrible in your life requires immediate attention.

On the other hand, dreams about overpowering or owning a snake could signify personal power or your capacity to overcome difficult situations.

The serpent in the Garden of Eden convinced Adam and Eve to eat from the Tree of Knowledge.

Symbolic Role of Snakes in Christianity and Judaism

The serpent has an important role in the Hebrew Bible, shared by both Christians and Jews. In the Garden of Eden, a serpent tricked Adam and Eve into eating fruit from the Tree of Knowledge, making them mortal. In some interpretations, the serpent in the garden represents sexual desire and the fall of man from purity, while in others, a snake can be seen as a carrier of wisdom. In the Christian New Testament, snakes sometimes represent the Devil.

A dream about a snake, then, can mean many things according to the Christian and Jewish traditions. Most likely, the snake represents deception, either your own or someone else's. Dreams about snakes can also be about sexual desire, particularly a desire you may be ashamed of or feel is wrong.

Chinese Interpretation of Snake Dreams

In the Chinese zodiac, snakes are seen as intelligent but mysterious and perhaps a bit manipulative and sneaky. Snakes do not have the same evil connotations in Chinese folklore as in Islam or Christianity.

In a dream, a snake transforming into a dragon is a sign of personal growth, and a snake on its own can be a sign of power and strength. If the snake tries to attack you, your response determines the meaning of the dream and how capable you are in dealing with challenges.

A snake wrapped around a staff is the ancient Greek symbol for the medical profession.

Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung’s Interpretations of Snake Dreams

Freud and Jung were both psychoanalysts. Whereas Freud saw dreams as an expression of personal unconscious sexual desire, Jung understood dreams as a way of tapping into a collective unconscious based on shared archetypes and cultural symbols.

A Freudian may see a dream about snakes and ask the dreamer what their personal experience of snakes has been, particularly during childhood. For example, were they frightened by a snake as a child? Or did they have a beloved snake as a pet? According to Freud, the snake symbolizes a penis. So your interaction with the snake in your dream is in someway connected to your feelings about sex or sexual relationships in your waking life.

A Jungian would want to discuss the archetypical meanings of snakes, such as the religious ones discussed above. Jung believed that dreams about snakes personify a threatening aspect of the conflict between conscious mind and instinct.

My Interpretation of Snakes in Dreams

Many dreams are your unconscious mind's response to events in your past and present. If you have any troubling memories or childhood trauma, they may be represented in dreams as a snake. Try to process your past traumas by writing in a journal or talking to a psychologist, because if not dealt with, these issues will snake their way into your dreams.

      In my dream, we (husband, sisters and niece and nephews) were outside the house ( brick house) I'm assuming it was our house. There was a white snake that was short but really big coming from under the house and a green snake coming out the front door and sat on the porch. I jumped on my husband, then ran and couldn't find my vehicle to jump in. There was no harm done by the snakes, they were just there.

      I had a dream of a yellow snake. I think it was a banana snake I’m sorry i don’t know snakes much. So the snake had my whole body wrapped with itself. My brother came and i scream to get our dad. Of course I was scared. Then it was like a movie? So a youtuber has snakes and sells them it was like a after screen? I was yelling at him that his snake almost killed me. He ask me was the snake on you stomach and I said yes and then he said oh no and I woke up. I am scared of the oh no point this is everything that happened. What does this mean exactly?

      dreams can be wierd sometimes, i started seeing one snake inside a dough bowl after opening the lead, so i went outside to get something i could use to attack the snake, by the time i came back it had moved into the cupboard, i attacked it and it jumped out of the door chased it and it dissapeared into the ground

      so while standing outside amazed by this situation the were people around me but then i started seeing more snakes ifront of the house and its seemed like other people were not aware of them

      one again i attacked all of them one by one. and the last one i attacked bite me on my left foot, and it felt so good killing them. cause even the one that bite me was dead.

      that is what pushed me to search about the meaning of snakes in dreams

Later on in the dream I think my little brother said watch out there’s a snake on the tree. I didn’t see it at first but then I saw it. It wasn’t big it was small. Then I Laid down on a couch and looked up and saw this snake don’t really remember the first color. Anyways there was this other snake that was closest to me. So I yelled for my mom to come but I couldn’t really scream so then the snake started to glow in green. I kept screaming and then my mom came but when she arrived the snake started chasing me. I was terrified I ran and tried to scream but I was whispering. I eventually got back to the couch and l was Laying there like hiding. I was trying to yell at my mom and sister to kill it but they said they would leave it there because it wasn’t doing anything to me. I then woke up from my dream scared

      I dreamt of growing up in California, I never did grow up there which is odd but a lot of the aspects were same as where I actually did grow up in real life. Anyways, I started out in high school, but I was playing baseball and I forgot a lot of stuff, and ended sleeping in one of the cages where we were supposed to take some cuts before our game. I woke up only to find out that our game was pretty much over and my coach in real life was there chewing my ass about it. The next part of my dream I dreamt I was in school but trying to talk to teachers about how much I had to attend a certain class because in the previous semester I had already partially completed it, but no one could answer my question. I kept asking but eventually they started to ignore me until I felt like I was being confined to a space and couldn’t get out. That’s when it turned into lunch time and I felt released in some way. I started to walk to lunch, but met up with this guy who I know in real life but never really hung out with like ever. He told me he’d take me to this really good restaurant he’d been at before so I went with him. We got to the restaurant and they spoke Spanish. They served him and another person I do not know that sat with us the same dish but would not serve me that dish because I wasn’t like them, or a part of certain culture they were in. When she came back I tried speaking to her in Spanish, and I can speak a little bit of Spanish decently, she seemed to be surprised but happy at the same time. She still told me I could not have what they ordered, but this time she told all of us that if we came back later that night then there would be a special surprise for us. She then had to make sure we were old enough to go, and we all were. All I remember is walking around on a second story wooden deck that looked very old and weathered and suddenly it turned to night, and all of us were at the base of this 2 story restaurant. Eventually we made our way in and noticed there were tons of people inside and women, lots of women, some not so great looking but some really good looking. The restaurant had turned into like a strip club or something, I’ve never been to one in real life but that’s what it felt like. As we walked up the stairs close to where we had gotten our food earlier that day I saw the woman who had served us food earlier. She whispered something into one of the lady’s ears she was next to but I didn’t think much of it. She came over to us appropriately dressed unlike the rest of the girls there so she must’ve been the manager or something. She told us we could have anything and anyone we’d like. I saw other people getting lap dances some blow jobs but no one having sex. So I did what any guy would do and I asked this really pretty girl what she’d do for me and she said, “anything.” I then said, “let’s just start out with a lap dance. She told me it’d be five bucks super cheap I know but I think it was that special surprise the manager had said we’d get if we came back. At this point I knew I had a hard on, but realized I had forgotten my wallet out in the car. So I quickly said, “but this ones for my friend here first.” She okay and I told the guy who showed me this place I’d be right back. I walked around on the weathered deck again for a little bit trying to wrap my head around this but quickly decided I should just get my wallet and get back in there, so I started to walk down the stairs and down another set of stairs to get to the street level. When got down there however, no street lights on for some reason, so I had to use my phones flashlight to see. This where the snakes started to come, and I think I remember some guy yelling from back at the party to be careful and watch out for the snakes. That’s when my flashlight went over the first snake coming out of a hole in the ground but mainly just sitting there. It was black with a red stripe it almost looked like a common garter snake but had only the size not anything else of a rattlesnake. I thought because it looked like a garter snake but a lot bigger it must’ve meant it could be poisonous. So I avoided it, and it just stayed there. As I walked down the sidewalk getting closer to the car which was parked about a block away because of all the other cars there started to be more and more snakes pop out of the ground. More and more were sitting in the sidewalk as my flashlight went over them as well. Most of the snakes were black with different colors of stripes, or different shades of brown all the same size as the first one. Eventually I started to jog to try to get away from all the snakes but then that’s when I started to see more and more snakes and this time I think they were getting kind of aggressive but not chasing me. Everywhere I turned more and more snakes started to pop out and this time they looked poisonous with a lot looking like corral snakes which are red yellow and black. Others looked like boa constrictors a lot bigger than the rest and brown but not that aggressive and still not chasing me. All of a sudden I decided to jump to safe spot where I could see no snakes at all. But it was a really long ways away maybe 30 feet away. I jumped anyways and it was like slow motion and no gravity at the same time. As I floated through air I realized I had jumped further then where I intended to jump and I couldn’t stop myself and when I landed I was running but almost stepping on snakes left and right trying not to get bitten and stumbling all at the same time trying not to fall on to them. After I almost fell I just woke up. Immediately I said that was fucking weird. Not sure what this means but I think it’s because I’m talking to a lot of girls right now, and I’m almost committed to being in a relationship with a girl who looked really pretty at first, but now isn’t as pretty as I thought she was. I’ve met her twice haven’t done anything really but kiss her. I just feel confused as to what this means what should I do?

      I had a dream that I saw a small snake near a tree, and not long after I saw it again (or presumed it was the same snake) but it was large, but only a carpet snake or python. It moved from under a pile of leaves in front of me and headed straight for a cat, which it quickly had in its mouth. I had no hesitation in prying it's mouth open and setting the cat free.

      I just woke from having a dream about a white snake whose tail fades into black trying to bite me in the back twice. The whole time it was trying to attack me, i felt no fear from or towards it. I've tried to look the snake up, but cant seem to find it anywhere.

      I had a dream that was in three parts. The third part had me and these two other girls who were friends heading home, we ran into this woman who we knew and she told us we should clean the swing set. There was a massive dirt around it and when two of the girls messed with it ants, three spiders, and two snakes came out. I ran around the backyard trying to get away from them, one was a snake with a head of a spider and a white spider chasing me. I asked the woman why they were chasing me and she said “the snake wants to prove it’s strength”. I wasn’t having any of that and kept running away from the snake and spider, I then asked the woman why the spider was chasing me and she said “I dunno, why dont you ask it?” I said “I’m not asking it anything!” And continued to run away from it.

      I’m not sure if I should had let the snake prove it’s strength and asked the spider what it wanted or not

      In my dreams, there were snakes all over the place. It was like a flood of snakes. Every inch of the ground, they were sprawled over and every wall and structure they started climbing. I wasn't scared of the snakes, nor was I overwhelmed, but I wanted to avoid them and get to some higher ground where they wouldn't be tbere. That's exactly what I did in the dream. The snakes were of all sizes and all colours. Every possible snake in existence was there.

I saw a glimpse of myself from behind from my normal height and I saw black scales, I was running away from something. Then later on I was on top of a black box in the sun raze relaxing and I remember my teacher saying I had red eyes. I was looking into the distance at an oddly colourful mountain. I looked up the snake I thought I was I was a black adder.

I then noticed my cat was taking care of a whole nest of them and ignoring her own kittens.... But the cat that was mothering them was my cat angel who just recently died and so did her 4 kittens she had. Angel came out of my room with a Candy whopper box her mouth, I knocked it out of her mouth and tons of baby snakes started flowing out!!! I started stomping on them until I thought they was all dead.... Then my dream switched to a Halloween/ Christmas dream with all my old friends from high school and my sister and her son.... we all dressed up for Halloween but then we was giving each other gifts.... made no sense.... scariest dream ever

I heard "a snake" from a male voice that sounded surprise yet not too scared. They moved away. I was scared at first because it appeared from my seat. I stood up and looked at the snake. It moved slowly and calm and somehow straight. As it noticed me it approached me at the same pace. Not knowing what it will gonna do I moved 1 step to the other side to avoid it too close to me and it followed me and try to approached me.

      I had a dream about a black snake and it was in a bucket in a room , in my dream i wasn't scared of it , i was in the corner of the room and the snake was there it wasn't just a empty room it had things in it , but it wasn't my room . The snake was pretty long from what i can remember , from time the snack would stick his head out and open his mouth really wide. I think every time he stuck his head out , it got closer because then it was in front of me and it tried to bite my foot , ( near the toes ) but i moved my foot and it tried agian but i moved my foot. Then the 3rd try it bite me and i woke up. What scares me the most is that i felt the pain, i felt the blood . I don't know what this means because getting snake bite in a dream is a good thing? but from a black snake? im confused if you had a similar dream can you please reach out and tell me more?

      I dreamed about snakes today. In my dream, I was in our classroom in school. We were so many in that room that time. And our Physics Teacher were discussing something in front of class. I wasn't really paying attention that time cuz i'm kinda distracted by the people inside that classroom. I'm feeling there was something wrong and there was something wrong going to happen. I was observing my friends in that room. But then I was called by our physics teacher and asked me a question. I just stared at her. Minutes later, we could hear like something that is flying. That's when we saw a 2 bats flying around our classroom and everyone started to panic but me and other students in that room, chased the 2 bats. But we couldn't cuz they flew away. We didn't realize that the 2 bats brought us in front of our science laboratory room of our school with a lot of SNAKES. They were so many and has a different colors: a black, a purplish black, green, yellow, etc. And then the boy with us started to attack and kill the snake in front of him and everyone else started to attack and kill the other snakes that trying to crawl towards them. I, myself, finds a thing to kill the cobra crawling in front of me. I found a wood. I hurriedly get the wood and killed the cobra. Then the boy with us was chasing a flying snake and it was i think a purplish black or greyish black color. I also started to chase that snake. But sadly, the girl with us with a short hair was chased and attacked by that flying snake and it bit the neck of that girl and she was dead. The boy with us was very angry and full of hatred cuz I can feel his aura. He then hurriedly attacked the snake and I helped him to kill that flying snake. After killing that flying snake, there's a 3 small snakes trying to bite me but I just walked away but the 3 small snakes followed me. I just trampled them multiple times until they're dead. I was going to walk away again but there's another cobra with a dark green with a hint of yellow color attempting to bite my feet but I also just trampled its head and I hit it hard with the wood in my hand. And then I woke up.

      I’ve always been afraid of snakes. But I’m my dream I was not sure if I wanted to hold it. It looked like a bald python. In the dream someone gave it to me, in the dream I don’t know if the person that gave it to me was a male or female. All I know that when the person gave it to me I was a little afraid but still took the snake. In the dream I felt like the snake liked me ( you know when a dog gets along with you) that was the feeling and the behavior of the snake tours me every time that I held it will wrap itself in my arms. But I did not trust the snake. In the dream I find myself with a co- worker and I asked her to take the snake because I wasn’t feeling comfortable with the snake anymore. Just because I was feeling that the snake like me but I was afraid of it. My co- worker takes it with no problem and see that she takes the snake and raps it in a blanked but she also puts her service dog on top of the snake. What is you interpretation? Hopefully I get an answer.
