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 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.

      The other night I had a dream about a snake, it wanted to be with me and not its owner. It went down my top, as it wanted to keep warm and when the owner tried to take it back it tried to bite him.

      I felt comfortable with it, but I just remember it was heavy to carry around and I know it was green and I think it was a cobra.

      Any ideas what it might mean?

It didn’t hurt. When the snake bit me I heard people yelling and running to me . I felt relaxed, I was closing my eyes and falling off the desk.

      Dreamt of an average man size snake, it was brown with a dirty white underside. It also had a very large bulb like head. It was inside a full-size truck bed with a pitch black background, then it switched to the opening of a crypt but the opening was on the ground. It spoke to me sweetly and asked that I let it out. I sensed an evil emanating from it and could tell it was lying. There was someone else standing next to me that had a bright halo around them, but I couldn't tell if they were male or female. It was also night time, but the light of a full or almost full moon illuminated my surroundings. I also had a sharp shovel in hand and was about to cut off the snakes' head, but decided to let it out. As soon as the snake appeared next to me I sensed that it was going to spit poison at me. I struck first and in a single strike decapitated the snake. I then woke up.

      Standing near my bed, as i look to the ceiling i see a small snake somehow sticking there. I wasn't sure if it was going to attack or not, so i decided to hurry out of my bedroom. Time slowed down for some reason and it took me some time to finally leave, at one point i was standing still and as soon as i moved the snake attacked. It attacked where i was standing not where i moved so it missed me, as soon as i realized it was attacking me i became very aggressive and jumped to where it was chopping it repeatedly with a knife. But after i killed this tiny snake started to regenerate and this time it was bigger. I kept killing it over and over again, there was a lot of blood on my hands and all over the snake. The snake just wouldn't die so i ran out of there always looking over my shoulder. Never saw it again for the rest of the dream but the alertness i was feeling never went away.

      Dreaming of snakes is never a good dream unless you conquer them. Enemies comes in the form of a snake as well as dogs. You have to stand up and fight in your dream while trying not to let these snakes get the upper hand on you. You must learn to control your dream in order to change your destiny. It is hard but with time you will learn this technique. Psychologists has different psychological reasons why you have these dreams. But on a spiritual level there are different meanings. That's why when psychologist ASSESS the mental health of individuals they have to make sure that the problem is either psychological or spiritual.

      Dreaming of a snake coming for you in any form means that you are in the state of sin, disconnected from God. Please believe me, I Love You All. My praising God in no way defiles the human being or places judgement on him/her in any way. I'm just telling you all the truth. If you are afraid that a snake is coming for you, either in waking time, or in dream state, then you are in the state of sin and you fear the wrath of God. This is the Truth Campaign... Pass it On.

      Tonight I woke up at 3am after having a dream of a snake that appeared to be under my skin on my lower back trying to come out. I also woke up and my lower back was hurting and I immediately reached down to feel my back to see if anything was there. It is now 4:30 am and I am wide awake and can not fall back asleep. I'm not afraid to fall asleep in the fear of having the dream again. I just am awake and wish I could go back to sleep. It made me feel a little for a second, but more made me curious why would I have a dream like that since I have never even had one close to it before.

      As soon as I fell asleep I had a dream about a red, black, and yellow snake chasing me (Not sure about the color order, but those were definitely the colors I saw). It was in my house and I was desperately trying to get rid of it. It was trying to bite me and no matter how many times I threw it outside or cut its body in seemed to always make its way back to me.

      Two nights ago I had a a very detailed dream. Lately ive been having these type of dreams. Anyways I was was on a farm im guessing it was our land because it did have a homey feel to it and it looked familiar. I was outside almost night time with my sibilings and we were going to explore i guess. I ended up trying to crawl through this cage thing and while I was crawling I noticed a dark colored snake. My first reaction was to try and run but I couldnt the cage I was in was to small. The snake ended up biting me and I wasnt to scare or upset about it. I got out of the cage and started running back to the house telling my sisters to be careful because of the snakes. I got back to the house and honestly I thought I was going to die I was being dramatic and after awhile I realized that the bite didn't even hurt. I was told by this doctor that I was immune to the snake venom. Everyone around me kept getting bit but after finding out that I was immune I gained confidence and I wasn't afraid anymore. It was extremely weird I kept coming in contact with all these snakes but the one that bit me in the beginning was the only one that I thought about and worried about. I honestly think it has something to do with guys in my life and the problems that are coming from them. The reason I came more curious about this dream was because of these show that I watched last night had a woman dreaming about a snake coming at her and when she woke up and told her friends they all said that it must mean that someone is pregnant. I guess I just thought it was interesting how we all have our own explanations and situations. Its pretty funny if you think about it.

      I had a dream that I went outside from this house I was in (not mine but I apparently knew my way around) and I stumbled onto a patch of dead grass in a field of rocks, as I moved aside from the grass a black snake slithered out and started chasing me, I ran across the rocks and up some stairs, it literally like flung itself upward onto the level I was on, so I ran back away and down the stairs, as it began to throw itself in my direction I ran towards the house door and shut it. My boyfriend showed up and I warned him about the snake, (he's not afraid of much in real life) so in my dream he grabs a dust pan and a stick and opens the door and proceeds to seat and push the snake back, making it more and more angry. While the snake got angry he somewhat transformed into a giant black lizard, that's when I shut the door as it seemed my boyfriend could care less and had it handled. He shortly after came back in, calm and carelessly saying it was still out there. So out of fear and panic at least that's what I felt, I grabbed a big shovel and ran out the door and jabbed at the snake (it was back to its snake form) and I cut it in half. Only for it to end up turning into two snakes now. It seemed after everyone in the household tried something and before we knew it there were tons of black snakes outside the house chilling and just waiting. At that point I apperantly found some sort of puzzle that required certain objects that if we used them they would go away. I woke up before we could find all the needed objects. I have no idea what my dream could mean.

      I just woke up from this odd dream. I had a dream that I was with 2 of my sisters & other people I did not know. One was a guy, I think from a tv show, he tried to mess around with me & I told him no because I have a boyfriend (I really do.) he stopped. I'm guessing we were somewhere having to deal with the military because a man in the military came in. (My boyfriend is also in the process of joining the military. It wasn't him though) Then we all went somewhere else. I wanted to go swimming. This place we were at had a pool. Other people were in it. We all went out there to go swimming. I seen two snakes in the pool. One was small & didn't try to harm anyone. Just swimming around in the pool. The other was kinda big. At first, it attacked this girl (she was with me but not sure who she really was). The snake was trying to get in the house where she was standing with the door open. Didn't harm her. We got the snake away from the door & back in the water. My little sister (who is 8) was beside me standing at the edge of the pool. All of a sudden, the snake swallows her feet & legs. I'm grabbing onto her arms & someone else is pulling the snake. Then I wake up. Why did I have such a dream like this?

      I dreamt that I kept seeing snakes everywhere I went and really could not escape them. Some attempted to attack me when it was just one on one and no other snakes were around and would bite at me but I would barely move out of the way at the last moment. Then the scenery would change but snakes would somehow still be there. One time I was in a patch of grass in my old friends backyard and the single snake bit at me but I moved away at the last second. Then it would change to a shallow, not deep, pit and there were snakes everywhere even on top of each other. The pit was mostly sandy but around the pit had some desert like schrubs and the sun was beating. Then it switched to a cone like thing I was holding that about 5 or so snakes in it. Then I remember running and at one point yelling "oh a boa constrictor!" As I passed one on the ground but then said "no wait that was a rattle snake". I don't really know what the scenery was like that I was running through.

      I've never had a dream about snakes ever before in my life and just thought this was interesting but maybe very slightly conscerning but still nothing to stress about.

      Hi I had a dream that I came home and there was a white Kenyan sand boa snake in my kitchen sink.. at first I was scared and felt fear but then I started to do my normal thing in the kitchen like as if it wasn't in my sink but I knew in the back of my head it was.. then it came up at me and like hissed at me but i was far back enough to not let it worry me to much I felt fear but calmness at the same time then my partner put water over it witch made me panic and I told him not to that and just to leave it till someone comes to collect it

      Then my daughter jumped up on to the bench/sink and as I was yelling at her to get down she put her foot slightly near the sink as she was hoping down and the snake latched onto her and was biting her and she grabbed the snake and threw it back in the sink she didn't seem hurt or scared and I felt anxious but calm it's hard to explain but then I woke up
