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 a forewarning about 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.

      I had dreamt about that someone awakened the giant serpent with a dragon like head. We were on a room with so many people around and it start to chase me their. However, when the scenery changes, Im in the ocean. and I heard a noise or news that there is something that is going to chase me. Id swim my life out as fast as i could. And then there is someone helped me find a shelter on the sea.. When the scenery changes again.. The snake is gone and Id taveled from miles away(flying) to the top because for some reason, there is a dome at top of a cloud and there are angels or fairies with bird like wings fighting a minotaur. I defeated the minotaur and there is a person saying to awaken the serpent ( i forgot what its called) and then the minotaur brought something in the arena and finding an angle to reflect the moon in the water and the arena somehow shakes and grumble. (fast forward) The snake talks to me about something ,,,,, and it made me look at my surroundings , and the snake keeps on talking with a scaaryyy voice.(fast forward) Ive killed the serpent using the sword that someone gave to me.. Splitting its body into half. And i woke up.

      I had a dream about a snake eating another snake. I am not sure what how to interpret that dream here. I woke up in a panic when the snake being eaten talked to me. I can't remember what it said but I just know that I woke up thrashing and I accidentally hit my wife while I was thrashing and woke her up.

      I dreamed of a rattle snake watching me while being silent by the bushes, and as I was walking by I was loud and stomping the ground and watching it cautiously to make sure that this snake knows it being watched by me.

      I just had a dream, seemed like family in the dream. Big rattle snake someone else wacked it and grabbed it by the tail. I grabbed the head it was 4 inches across and almost 3 feet long big. I grabbed it by the head and proceeded to remove it from where ever I was. I had no fear at all. The snake was kinda trying to bite me but again no fear or anxiety. I simply proceeded to walk away with it. Then I woke.

      I’ve never dreamt of snakes before the other night (not that I recall). This dream had TONS of dif snakes around a puddle in a sunken part of grass that was undulating (either w more snakes or perhaps the start of a small sinkhole). The snakes didn’t notice or threaten me & I felt no fear. I just stood there though I wasn’t too close but enough so. Mostly muted in colors ranging from Boas, Pythons, darkish yellows with black, blacks & browns. No red or bright or fantasy colored snakes. They seemed to be as bored as I was though if it were real life, I’d back away from all these snakes even if they were ignoring me. Didn’t wake up afraid but more confused because like I said, I don’t recall ever dreaming about snakes. Anyone that wants to take a shot at this, be my guest!

      For two days I constantly see snakes in my dreams ....

      For the first time seen in the evening, Snake in the dream was black, long, thick and very scary ... He was showing me anger by the voice, he was on my window and I was also very angry by seeing him. I wanted to kill him but my husband came and took him in his hand and told me not to kill him let it go ..

      This morning I saw the snake again, but this time it was a black and a yellow and green color. Both were not too tall and were too thin. This time they were both in the basin of my kitchen. Black was calm but Greene was showing anger. She was very poisonous . She chopped me in my hand and I panicked. After a while, the same snake started appearing to me at my husband's hands. Then I tightly tied his arm with a rope so that the poison did not spread .. and then send him to the doctor quickly.

      I dreamt a huge thick snake with colors of yellow, white and pink. it wasn't so much that it was long but very thick. Its head had particular features. I jumped up in fear in the dream as it quickly slithered away in fear ss well going up my wall. Then it came back on my bed and I took it and I choked it. It seemed like it died at first, but I kept choking it because something told me it wasn't dead. Then it started to try and bite me and got really close before I woke up.

      I had a dream of a huge white snake about 50 meters long in the muddy place, I avoided it. But when I thought I was safe, I saw another one about 15 meters long with wings, tried to attack me. I was scared and ran away in the dream. When I woke up, I remembered the dream clearly. One week later after the dream, I was falsely blamed by my co-worker and my manager believed that I was wrong, because my manager who also hates me, as a result, I was fired. My co-worker was a very evil one. So I do believe that dreamed of snake is an attack by the enemy or evil ones.

      I love snakes and in my dream there were hundreds and they all had babies, I was originally going for the babies so I could hold them, but then saw a friend holding a bigger one and wanted to hold a big one too! So I look through the snakes and find a very big black snake with a red head and pick it up. I let it slither ip my arm and I hug it a bit, then it bits my head sinking it's large teeth into my skull. It was very painful so I try to carefully take out his teeth, but he sinks them in further and I start going fuzzy and numb from the area it's bitting.... Then I woke up.

      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.

      In my dream I had a presentation for school the next day so my dad dropped a black bag with 5 snakes off at my house for me to use (my parents are divorced). The snakes were a black mamba, green mamba, a yellow python or boa(resembling the one in the Jungle Book greatly) and two red and black striped ones that didnt feature much. I held the snakes lot. I took the black mamba into the kitchen where it had a fight with my cat and bit her (she was still alive though). The green mamba, I was holding it in my room and my finger slipped into the side of its mouth but didnt touch the fangs. The yellow one slipped out of the bag and got lost in my room but i found it again. That one kept slipping away. They stayed in the bag and my cat went to sleep on top of them, happily. Strangely i wasnt as scared as i expected. I only started crying when my cat got bitten and worried when my finger slipped into the green mambas mouth and the yellow one got lost. What could this mean?

      I've literally woke up and searched for a meaning behind my dream, so I dreamt going outside finding a huge cage but the bars were bit big not suitable for snakes at all. In my dream I had to close their gate but i fell asleep and woke up to close it i walked over one was red and black small still but the other was almost the same size as my leg crocodile face snake body. It had something in it's mouth a crow i thought the thing jumped down and started to chase me back to the house and the house felt so far away but i got there.

      I don't know what to think about it.

      Hi dear friends. I need help

      please try to help me because, i dreamed really strange about the snake. I saw three different parts of the appearance of snake

      1: I saw a giant snake is sitting in back of a cow. it was like both are familiar two each other, because cow was not scared

      2: when that snake saw me, he chased and then they were two.

      I mean i do not know where from second snake comes. but they were two when they chased me into my house.

      3: then i locked myself, in my house because both snakes were hitting the doors, but someone hits them, they run away.

      I want to enter a 4th part as well,

      4: when someone hits the snakes, they run away, and they they were injured. after some time, i left my house. i saw those snakes with a woman. who was not much older. she will be around 35 or 40 years old. I saw those snakes were complaining to that woman, about their wounds. the woman was getting angry with them.

      She was rubbing turmeric powder on the wounds of snakes and telling them. Now, if you were ever leave the house without my permission. you will live out, forever

      snakes were ashamed and they were talking to each other.

      Then, i came our of my house, and i went pass closer to them. they did not even saw at me.

      can anyone please, what is this.

      I never saw snakes in my dreams often

      please help me with this, if someone can

      Ok, so I've had a few dreams before this, and they're we all about snakes, venomous snakes, biting me. However, this dream was the weirdest one.

      So, I went outside of my house and I see this bright yellow snake wrapped around a tiny black and green snake. I crouch down and I touch the snake, but then the yellow viper, I think it was, started chasing me up my porch. I then tried to kick it away, but then it bit me on the ankle. Now normally they would bite me on the hand, but this time it was on the ankle.

      OOF. Spooky.

      I had a dream about a whole pile of these baby snakes in a room, with me, my little sister, and step sister staying in that room. The snakes would only stay on the ground, and they would also never try to attack us but they would just move around on the floor. So how we would avoid them, was that we would jump and climb on furniture instead. There were other people in my dream that I recognized that I'm trying to not hurt them with the facing truth, but I don't know if I'm being truthful with myself, I have had a couple other dreams with snakes in it. The snakes looked mostly black or gray or just pink....please help/tell me what this means.

I call up my babies father to try to explain to him but he’s too busy to talk to me at that time I’m mad about that as well , what does this dream all mean it’s a lot in one dream im trying to make out but I’m scared that I dreamt of a damn snake like that .
