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.

Black snake dream meaning
Black snake dream meaning

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.

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.

      Last night I had a dream where I was in a car with my aunt, and we got stuck somewhere trying to reach to my mom, so I got out of the car, walked through some greens and stuff and saw my mom on the other side. She told me that I need to get the car to her and I need to Hotwire it or something, so then I went back. When I came back, I saw my aunt standing next to the car and I told her what to do. I then went through an area with tall grass to get to her, but then I accidentally stepped on a fat, black Boa Constrictor. It almost looked like a slug. I screamed in terror and then saw another one on the side. I was trying to run away from them and I think I woke up when the one I stepped on curled around my leg and bit me with it’s poisonous teeth. It scared me so much, I woke up in my bed at five a.m squirming around to see if there are any snakes there.

      When I was a young child in elementary school 4 or 5 grade I seen a UFO. I watch it land behind some industrial buildings behind my home. I could see them from my bedroom window. I was so frightened but yet curious at the same time that I couldn't go to sleep because I had to watch it take off or leave. I never seen it leave and all I remember was waking up the next morning not know when I went to sleep. From that night forth I had nightmares of snakes falling from the ceiling and covering the floors of my bedroom, living room, front porch and front yard every single night for many years. They never tried to attack me but I was so frightened of them that I would try to run out the house but they were everywhere I ran (many of them). But I noticed everywhere I stepped to run away they would open a spot for me feet to land. I am now almost 53 in two weeks and still remember how horrified I was for many years after seeing the UFO and snakes in my nightmares afterwards that I am extremely afraid of snakes till this day. I don't recall when I stopped having these nightmares be eventually I did. Those nightmares still puzzle me till this day and I would like to know if anyone could please interpret them for me to make sense of them?

      Im fairly chill with non venomous snakes. Recently I had a dream that i began receiving a subscription box of various snakes starting small and manageable but getting bigger with each box. I didnt sign up for this box and did not have a tank for the snakes so they would make their way to various places in my childhood home. I would find them in the pantry and in my closet and just pretty much wherever i wasn't expecting them. I was always startled but never really scared. It was very strange. Then yesterday I dreamed that while i was gardening I pulled a very fat snake out of the ground because I thought she was a vegetable. I screamed and she took offense that I was afraid and left. I tried to apologize for my reaction but it didn't help. Tons of weird stuff about that dream including that I somehow knew thw snake was a she. I have no idea what any of this is supposed to mean.

      My yellow snake was something important to the group of people I was with in the dream. They kept it in a wooden box without a lid on a high shelf. It attacked me, but didn’t bite, and the next thing I knew, it was back in the box. It was always staring at me.

      In my conscious life, I’m going through an immense amount of financial stress of which I see no way out. My instinct is telling me to just spend the money, but real people, like my mortgage loaner, obviously says that’s not a good idea. Should I listen to the dream snake, or real financial experts XD

      I dreamt of multiple snakes when i was on my way home it happened two times when i was in my younger days what was so frightening about the dreams its the snakes where so many and as i try to walk as gentle as i could to avoid being bitten by one they all moved aside as i walked by they didn't feeling threatened nor did they wanna bite me, i found myself in the same dream fall in to a river filled with huge snakes but their was they hugest snakes amongst the snakes i looked like a stick of matches to it but it looked me straight in to my eyes and got me out of the water i was scared cause i didn't know what was going on because snakes always attack when they say any human being but with me they just didn't, i felt like it was a fairytale it was just too weird and so wrong, the same huge snake that got me out of the water was in all my dreams about snakes and would always protect me why i just didn't know until it spoke to me and told me it was sent to protect the king. This dream has been on my mind for years even though it happened a will ago every time i see any snake shows the dream becomes fresh in my mind and like i dreamt it yesterday, i wish i could find someone who would actually explain this dreams and what they meant, i only understood one dream when i got chased by a huge snake on my way to school only to find out it was a warning to me that the girl im dating is not right for me and the following day she broke up with me i wasn't shocked nor surprised because the dream i dreamt of a snake chasing

      Reed snake... Female...she was, talking to me I suppose. We came to an agreement that I needed her help and to do so she had to change me from within. I put my hand on the ground, palm to the sand and she entered the underside of my wrist. What happened after or before that is void. I haven't been able to find a meaning for exactly what happened although I've gone through quite a few pages of general explanations for "red snake dreams".

      I dreamed that I saw a very big, as in big that its head is as big as the body of an elephant, brown and two headed snake. Then I also saw two men fighting with the snake. The other man blindfolded the other using a black cloth and after that he also blindfolded himself. When I again look at them, the men were already gone (believed that the snake had eaten them.) when the snake saw me, it started to chase me but he was being eaten by a very big, twice as big of the brown snake that it eats the two heads in one time. The color of the snake is luminous white. Pls answer me. Thank you so much.

      My dream was in a rather familiar area. I was in my old neighborhood and watched a kid almost run a black rainbow colored snake over. The snake turned to the boys bike and bit the seat bairly missing the kid and knocking the kid several feet away. I do not fear snakes so i approched it and began to uncoil it before it began to ingest the bike. Random right... I then recall being in an unfamiliar place at this point and handling the snake. It stared at me knowing i didnt fear it bitting me i then began to think to myself i hope it isnt poisonous. I set the snake down and let it go into the grass as the snake got furthar away i then realized how big it was as compared to how big it felt. I dont remember my dreams this vividly and dont quite understand how to interpret it. These guides help but sincerely just sent me for a loop...

      In my experience there r 2 explanations for snake dreams, 1) someone is pregnant 2) you r going to experience some enemy activity

      There is supposedly another meaning with sexual connotations.

      I once dreamt of 3 snakes in 3 colours and in the dream i was terrified. The very next day something happened in my life which began a chain of events that changed my life. And there were 3 ppl involved.

      All i can advice everybody is to lead good clean kind lives. If u keep the following five rules, u will generally be protected from anything bad.

      1. Do not kill ANY living being

      2. Do not steal

      3. Do not engage in sexual misconduct. If married, be faithful

      4. Do not utter falsehoods or engage in any deceit

      5. Do not consume alcohol/no drugs

      If you keep these, no harm will befall u

      I was being coiled by a snake much bigger then me ,it forced it's tail inside me ,I had a mix of sexual sensation not I'm my control and great fear as I was using all of every bit of my strength to wrestle it from biting my head...

      I know it says snakes may indicate sexual desire or tention but I was thinking only maybe 7 years old when I had the dream and honestly didn't even know what sex was and I could never describe that it was a sexual sensation until I was in my teens inwich I had experienced it finally ..it was then I knew that's what I felt in my dream...

      In the dream I was not enjoying pleasure Just feeling sensation and fighting back with all my strength.. my arms shakes from weakness and then I wake.... I have been stuck with the memory and makes me wonder WHY???

      clearly I was raped by this snake and didn't know it.. it's quite disturbing...

      Anyway.... Thoughts?

      I had a dream there was a boa constructor in my drawer in my room. I was alone with my sibling and I took them and ran outside. I was panicking. I could hear the snakes heartbeat it my ears and I could sense where it was in my home. I tried to call animal control but they didn’t answer. They called seconds later and I accidentally hung up out of panic. Somehow they came eventually, but they couldn’t find the snake. The odd thing is that I love snakes, they are beautiful and majestic creatures, I never thought of them as dangerous until now.

I dont even remember if the snake ever bit me or if she ever opened the door for me to let it out.. I need answers

      So last night I had a dream that I was running on a dirt road. On this diet road trees had fallen. These trees turned into whispers and were trying to strangle or kill me. I had so much fear of getting through this but an animal was next to me guiding me and I got through. Then this man showed up and was showing me these snakes. He said the were worm snakes. Then they stated crawling through the heel of my foot. This isn’t the first time I’ve had dreams that mean something or are trying to tell me something. But this dream I can’t seen to wrap my head around. Maybe someone can help?

I tried 4 times to growl at it to scare it off but no sound would come out, on the 4th one only. A whisper came. I couldn't move with fear After a few minutes it slithered off the end of my bed and disappeared..

      My dream is a bit weird, i was in a house surrounded by filipinos (the language spoken in my dream but i live alone in Myanmar), i corssed many housing in a large kind of appartments separated by some back yard with many different parties. I arrived "home" and my filipino hoisemate (in the dream) cleaned the living room, when moving the sofa,... 5 snakes were in kind of ball and attacked some white rats 1 injured at first but 4 others came to the rescue him and bite the snakes until they "run" away.... at the end 3 were badly injured but the last 2 helpes the others to heal... during that time i was a spectator and my "friends" too. After the fight, we saw a "baby" snake so furious moving very fast and jumping all around, we akl screamed and run inside the livin room to avoid it, then the 2 white rats chased him away. We pushed the sofa again and the last snake appeared, very angry and jumped at me which i caught but bit me on the arm. I felt paralysed then i woke up unable to move the whole body, sweat and the whole boday contracted itself. I could not move for a minute or two. My arm was numb (wrong position of the body, not enough blood on the arm).

      What does that mean? The snakes were kind of brown. Thank for your jnterpretation...

      Ok. So for me it could be most of them. My dream was that I was in a back yard with Dorian ( and he was smaller). I was looking out and there were long large stacks and logs. But then- I looked closer, and saw the sticks and logs were thick long large snakes. As I ran into the house, the came towards me. I then shut the door closed and like three of their heads got cut off by the door and dropped to the floor. WTF!!!! Now I’m going to dream about it again. Dammit!!!

      I just woke up from a dream about a snake (the same snake) in two separate storage units. It was guarding the doors and would chase my fiancé and I around until we left the buildings. He didn't know about the snake, but I did. When we left the buildings though, I would hold the door closed and ask my fiancé if he had the key. He didn't, but I did. I was able to lock the doors and protect him.

      Recently, we had a couple friends of ours who moved. They left pretty much all of their stuff in units back here. One of them was being very emotionally manipulative, using pity and her own sense of stress to make us feel obligated to help her find something in the units, on her time, not ours. She was mostly communicating with me about it, and using every emotion she could to make me move faster. We were supposed to move with them here in a couple of weeks. I have been hemming and hawwing about it, since my fiancé told me that it was really up to me because he didn't care. I think I have my answer!

      I have had a recurrent dream about snakes..one time it was black . Last night it was brightly coloured orangey red I think , I cant quite remember, But i chased it away from my baby girl , that it was trying to bite and attack.Then it was trying to attack and bite me again . I saved my baby and got her out of harms way of the snake , putting her in a safe area of our house, with my other children, that were also in the dream , while I then grabbed the snake around the neck, with two hands . The snake was very very strong, and I had to use all my strength to hold it back , as it tried to strike and bite me , then somehow I managed to rip its venom teeth out. one by one , discarding them on the ground / floor , of my house , its dark yellow venom spilling, and leaking onto the floor, around the broken teeth .. then I took my baby and children and left. My baby and children were safe , and the snake was laying on the floor, near the front door , as we walked out of the house, my baby in my arms, my children on my right holding my hand /arm, the snake on the left side of me , but i dont remember if it was alive or not .. then I woke up .. Im not sure of what this means , but its really bothering me now .. once was frighteneing enough , two times, someone is trying to tell me something , But what ?

I somehow managed to run all the way back to my house and when I turned around, I saw that it was still chasing me. It kept trying to attack me so I tried to grab it with my hands and it managed to bite both of my hands. I ended up killing it somehow in the end though.

      I had a dream about a green snake. I looked for its head and pressed it against the wet floor. I was drowning the snake every time i took it out of the water it would push water out of its nostrils. I then began to slam its head on the floor while holding it from the middle of its body. When i took it out of the house placed it on the floor it turned into a woman .. i got a rock and threw it on its head. The eyes of the woman rolled back but she didnt die, i ran to her picked her up brought her back in the house and i coulnt kill her i didnt feel the necessity to kill the woman... then i woke up.

      hi...welp lets just jump right in it. I had a dream of this person I have been 'seeing' and after he was done hugging me i had a red snake with black and white stripes on it (kinda like a honduran milk snake). he commented that it was gross or something and I was just holding it admiring its colors, then I woke up. I looked up what holding a snake means in dreams, apperently it means that someone close is lying to me or is manipulative to me ig. what Im wondering now is what does the colors mean?

      I've had a couple of dreams about snakes, and a lot of the time I will have the same one twice or even three times. Last night, I had one that I experienced a while back where at first I was getting chased by a black snake with my blonde friend and then we try to kill it, I chopped its tail off but somehow its tail was the thing that was deadly so I died and then I was the blonde friend, but I was looking at her in third person most of the time. So, I spend ages and ages just running away from this snake in what seems like a tropical forest setting but with like a green jeep near me and a cobblestone path and even a village near me. At some point, I was in my house. I keep trying to kill it but it's immortal. Then I wake up.

      Super random fact to add to this post but in Laos, dreaming of a snake means that a husband or guy likes you. If the snake bites you, that means that person REALLY likes you. I can’t explain but that’s a Laos superstion.

      I dreamt i was in an unknown place that at the same time felt strangely familiar. Out of nowhere an incredible amount of snakes kept coming from different places and people i was interacting with didn’t look terrified at all, actually quite the contrary. The most significant thing was this beautiful yellow snake that crawled up my body and although I felt terrified I also did not find it hostile at the same time.

      You know no one seems to mention or know where the medical symbol with the two snakes wrapped around the pole came from. Its from the bible, when the isralites were on their way to the promised land, they sinned and i beleive they were slandering moses and God and God sent fiery serpents to punish them. For the sake of the repentant moses was told to erect a pole with a bronze snake on it amd whoever looked at it did not die from the bite.
