There are many different interpretations of dreams about snakes from belief systems around the world.

Many people see animals or snakes in dreams, but fewer know that animals can symbolize feelings we are trying to repress. All animals are known for their specific characteristics. The elephant is known to be methodical and possesses an impressive memory. Snakes, on the other hand, mean many different things in different cultures.

These facts about snakes influence all of the various cultural interpretation they have:

  • Snakes can move quickly and in surprising ways.
  • Many species shed their skin, revealing the new layer of skin beneath.
  • Some snake bites are poisonous.

These traits can be seen symbolically to represent:

  • stealth, a nimble nature, sneakiness, the ability to surprise and hide
  • transformation, rebirth, change
  • death, a poisonous nature, evil

So, what are possible meanings of a snake in a dream? As we've said, the meaning can vary and there are many different ways to interpret dreams. Read on for some specific interpretations of snake imagery, and find more insights into the many things that snakes can symbolize in dreams.

Different Interpretations of Snake Symbols

We will discuss these belief systems:
• Christianity
• Psychology
• Parapsychology
• Hinduism
• Freudian and Jungian Psychoanalysis
• Islam
• Ancient Greek Myth
In the Old Testament, the snake represents Satan. In a dream, it may symbolize the temptation of evil.
In the Old Testament, the snake represents Satan. In a dream, it may symbolize the temptation of evil.

The snake, as depicted in the Old Testament, is the agent of Satan. Perched in a tree, the serpent represents the devil, tempting Eve with the apple of knowledge. This story could be said to have put a curse upon the animal itself. Satan is the actual tempter, but he used the serpent as his instrument. The lesson: Even the most nimble and subtle beasts in the world cannot resist evil. As a result, the snake has been blamed throughout history for the fall of Adam and Eve.

From then on, in the bible, the snake is a poisonous character. Even the word "serpent" is used in the Book of Luke to describe a deadly, subtle, and malicious enemy. The snake's intelligence is used for evil in the bible. In dreams, it symbolizes deception, possibly by another person or even by the dreamer.

According to psychological theory, a frightening dream about a snake represents childhood trauma.
According to psychological theory, a frightening dream about a snake represents childhood trauma.

A number of people have an extreme fear of snakes, so dreams might represent that fear. Fear and anxiety are widely associated with snakes. It may be a childhood fear, perhaps based upon a real remembered or forgotten experience. As in real life, snakes can represent a threat, worry, or persistent problem. When snakes appear in dreams repeatedly, they carry an important message about an unresolved life issue.

A Psychologist's Analysis

Parapsychologists say that a snake in a dream represent people we do not trust.
Parapsychologists say that a snake in a dream represent people we do not trust.

Parapsychology is the study of paranormal and psychic activity. According to dream parapsychologists, snakes, lizards, and other small, venomous animals represent uncertainly and deceit. These creatures appear in dreams when the dreamer suspects that someone in their life is not trustworthy, that they are being secretly persecuted, unfairly judged, misunderstood, or excluded. The dreamer may feel they are not adequately voicing their opinion. Reptiles might represent conflict with an overbearing person or with someone whose actions are unacceptable to the dreamer. Perhaps the dreamer is unable or unwilling to behave as another person wants them to.

Another parapsychological interpretation, however, might relate to the idea of a spirit guide. Spirit guides are not always human, some are animal. Snake spirit guides are said to offer messages of healing and endurance.

In Hinduism is it believed that a threatening snake in a dream represents an enemy that is working against you in life. A naga, however, as pictured above, is lucky.
In Hinduism is it believed that a threatening snake in a dream represents an enemy that is working against you in life. A naga, however, as pictured above, is lucky.

According to the Hindu tradition and mythology, to see a long snake and feel threatened by it in a dream symbolizes a bad enemy. It is also a warning against bodily harm. However, to dream of many snakes in a pit is considered to be a premonition of great bad luck. If a dreamer kills a threatening snake, this represents overcoming an adversary and winning.

There are many Hindu interpretations:

  • According to Swami Shivand, a snake dream means you have sly and dangerous enemies who will injure your character and life.
  • Seeing a snake (or a naga) in a dream is very common for many people. According to the ancient Hindu text known as Swapna Shastra, a snake in a dream is considered good.
  • Two dreams that are specifically mentioned in the Swapna Shastra are of a snake biting the dreamer and of a person biting or eating a snake. The former is interpreted as a positive curing of an ailment or disease; the latter means the dreamer will be blessed with material wealth or children.
  • In Hindu mythology, catching a snake in a dream is a victory over enemies. Being bitten by a snake is lucky, but killing a snake is unlucky. Seeing a snake fall over you is a forewarning of sickness and worries, just as seeing a snake come out of any part of your body (such as an ear or nose) predicts trouble in that part of your body. Seeing a snake climb a tree or cross your path is lucky.
  • However, if the dream with snakes is the result of seeing, talking about, or watching scenes involving snakes, such dreams are to be ignored and are considered as mere play of the mind.
  • A dream about snakes appearing in water may have a purifying meaning. Water, according to Hinduism, is spiritually cleansing.

According to Freud, snakes in dreams symbolize the penis and repressed sexual desire. Jung, however, wrote that snakes represent a conflict between the conscious mind and the instinct.
According to Freud, snakes in dreams symbolize the penis and repressed sexual desire. Jung, however, wrote that snakes represent a conflict between the conscious mind and the instinct.

Sigmund Freud established the branch of psychology known as psychoanalysis, which relies in large part on interpreting dreams. Freud believed that snakes, when they appear in dreams, are associated with sexuality, male figures, how a man experiences his own manhood, or a woman's relationship with men or male energy. A dream that includes a snake, according to Freudian theory, is an opportunity for the dreamer to consider any repressed sexual desire or inner conflict about sexuality.

Freud's student, Carl Jung, believed that while a person is dreaming, their unconscious mind has access to ancient, universal symbols. He described snakes as symbolic of natural wisdom and that their movements—nimble and agile—represent taking most direct possible path when facing a choice or problem. Snake dreams indicate some conflict between the dreamer's conscious mind and their instinct, or natural wisdom.

According to Muslim belief, killing a snake in a dream symbolizes overcoming a fierce enemy.
According to Muslim belief, killing a snake in a dream symbolizes overcoming a fierce enemy.

According to Ibn Seerin, a Muslim dream interpreter, snakes represent enemies. Killing them symbolize overcoming the enemy. It is also said that becoming a snake in a dream means that the dreamer is not behaving like a good Muslim in their waking life.

There are a number of Muslim interpretations of snakes in dreams:

  • Small snakes represent small children.
  • Being swallowed by a snake means the dreamer will become powerful and important.
  • Killing a snake and staining one's hands with its blood means overcoming one's enemy.
  • If a snake speaks friendly words, this represents benefiting from one's enemy's actions. If the words are harsh, then this symbolizes suffering from tyranny or oppression.
  • If one's garden is covered with snakes, this means that crops will do well and exceed their usual yield.

In Greek myth, the snake symbolizes transformation. Tiresias, upon finding a pair of mating snakes, kills one of them and then turns into a woman.

According to Greek mythology, snakes represent as a warning or that someone is trying to control you. Dreaming about a snake was thought to be a signal to be careful. Such dreams were also interpreted as an aspect of the dream's inner self, or of someone close, possessing great wisdom and strength. In other words, the dreamer may face danger, but they have the strength to adapt and overcome.

According to one story, Tiresias, a prophet of Apollo, came upon two mating snakes on a road. Feeling threatened, he killed the female snake and was then transformed into a woman. Seven years later, Tiresias saw two snakes again and this time slew the male. He was changed into a man. In this way, Tiresias is seen as an adaptable figure that moves between masculinity and femininity.

      I remember in my dream I was walking trying to do something, trying to get somewhere, someone was following me or something was happening. I remember feeling this weird feeling in my bottom of my left foot. I looked and had this little hole on the bottom of my foot. The more I looked I noticed there was a snake in there. I couldn't figure out how and during certain times I can squeeze my foot in the snake will come out. But he would hide it back in quickly. I can't stop thinking about it because I have no idea why the heck I dreamed that. Am I stepping on a snake at work or at home? Or am I the snake stepping on someone's toes, I have no idea. I remember the emotions in my dream certain things I would do I can get it to come out like control it but when I thought about it it would disappear I believe. I kinda have a memory of being able to do something like that

      First, I really wish someone was here to answer to some of our queries involving dream interpretation

      Am not gonna go into details but I dreamed of seeing a pure white snake, I felt threatened and scared as it looks like it's after me, to bite me, but with the help of someone I don't seem to recognize in the dream, we were able to kill the white snake by cutting off its head, but at that, it still felt like it's alive cus the body was still moving... Then I woke up

      I swallowed a snake while I was in second year, sinior high school. I'm 26(14/11/2018)now and that was about 10yrs ago

      Before the above dream I've always dreamt of being threatened by big snakes, out of fear I always try to fight them when they try to play with me.

      I've had these dreams more than twice.

      And then inbetween the above dream I've killed a snake alone once and once I've also help 2 friends kill a stake, I started seeing snakes regularly even in our garden.

      And then After I swallowed a snack in my dream, I was scare.

      My dream: the snake came at me, we started fighting, the snake opened it's mouth to swallow me, I opened mine and swallowed it instead.

      I could not eat the whole of that day, I had this dream during the early hours of the day, at about 2am. I was full and drank only water.

      From that very day till today I stopped seeing snakes in my dream and in reality.

      I'm a Christian.

      I have a dream this morning. On our way home, we past by a dead person. After that, I saw myself waiting by the roadside, I guess im still waiting then for my friend filing a report. Suddenly,i felt uncomfortable so I looked around and saw a big sleeping black snake (anaconda) on my left. I looked at it,i moved on his left, took pictures. When i realized there is another snake on my right side, but it was a big python. I felt uneasy, somewhat scared especially with the anaconda because i heard anacondas can move faster. They both moved slowly backwards, take a position in a higher part of the roadside, side by side. They are looking back at me, so i took a picture of them. That's when my husband woke me up.

      *By the way, im not sure if this will help:. I'm a Gemini, born in year of a snake

      I have 2 younger brother and a mum and a dad.

      So i dreamt about my mum and one of my brothers sleeping together on a very thin mattress on the floor. There were 2 thin but slightly long snakes of around 30-40cm, one of which is red, the other yellow, both seemingly harmless. They were slightering around all 3 of us while my brother and mum continued sleeping. There was also one lizard on the wall, not your average household lizard but still relatively small around 7cm. Because i couldnt stand sleeping around 2 snakes slithering around and was slightly afraid, I stood up and wanted to walk out to the living room before my brother woke up and told me there was a huge python outside. Dont know why, but seems like i ignored his comment n still went out to the living room and started walking towards the sofa at the other end of the room. And the moment i sat down, i saw a 4m long python charging towards me and eventually bit on the edge on the sofa. Fear stricken, i started screaming for my dad for help who was sleeping in another room. But after countless tries of screaming, nobody came out and my father refused to come out of his room to save me. Being left to my own books, I had no choice than to deal with this python myself so i swiftly grabbed it by the area close to its head and managed to coil the snake around 2 poles (starting from the head on one pole and the tail on the other) and clamped it down so it couldnt move. And thats where the dream ended.

      I had a dream last night. I am with my 2 friends and we went to an old house(I really don't think it's an old house but it's colored by black, white and brown). My other friend got inside the house while me and my one friend goes into the garden. The garden seemed to be abandoned base on what I remember, it's crops are not in order, it's scattered everywhere. In front of us, it's so dark then in the upper portion of the garden there's a squash plant. Then when my friend and I looked down there's a black and red striped snake, it's closer to my friend but it chased me so, I ran away but when my friend said "don't run", the snake turn to her side and chased her so, we ran away until we reached the front gate. We stopped and looked back, instead of seeing the chasing snake, we saw a the same colored snake but without a head. After seeing it, my friend picked something, but it's a snake, same color as what we saw before. My friend was almost bitten but she let go of it then, we ran away again. At the end of my dream, I didn't saw other friend who got inside the house. What would be the meaning of this?

In the dream when i took off my jacket and had someone pull them from under my shirt there was 2 on my left side, one way red and black the other was yellow and black, then one was on my right, it was pure white. I remember being scared of being bitten but when they were removed from me and placed on the grown they just slithered away. What could this mean?

      I had a dream that my family moved to different place and before I went to the back yard I saw a baby snake fall from the ceiling but I threw it away. I opened the backyard door and I saw the whole yard filled with small and big snakes. The big one had long black tongues. And for some reason a big one was in the refrigerator so as soon as my mom opened the refrigerator it wrapped it tongue around my mom and swallowed her. My whole family was stuck in the house and anyone who tried to save us was swallowed by the snakes in the backyard even before they could get to the bell.

      I recently had a dream about a giant (about 20 meter long)black cobra ( pet snake) living in my living room. I commanded the cobra to hide somewhere as it was swinging all over in the lounge and guest are coming in shortly to visit. I thought if the snake fail to obey my command and try to swallow me I will go inside the snakes tummy and cut through the tummy with the big knife to give the snake a lesson. The snake obey my command tried to hide under the fridge and dining table. Then my flatmate, picked up the snake and start cuddling told me not to rebuke the snake as he is such a gentle snake. Snake listen to me , humble, smiled and behave like a good boy. But I still had caution eve though I dd not feel danger of it. then I awake up from sleep, I had no fear of it. What it this meaning. I never saw a big and powerful snake of this size.

      In my dream I set off to find a snake to milk its venom. The snake lived in a small alclove in a cliff side in a bleak scottish looking landscape. I climbed up to the alclove and found the rough clay urn holding the snake. I removed the lid but it was empty. I glanced to the side and saw the snake hiding beneath the brambles. It came forward to attack me as scrambled bacwards down the cliff. I caught it by its neck and climbed back up to the cave. At first i felt a sharp sting on my hand and i thought i had been bitten. I saw it was just the snakes scales had dug into the meat of my thumb. I sat in the cave and pressed the snakes fangs onto the side of a small glass jar i brought with me. Village people had gathered at the base of the cliff to cheer and the small children were very excited and yelled out questions. I finished collecting the venom by which time the snake was very withered and halfdead as I had strangled it. I chopped it in half with my machete. I climbed down with the venom very much relieved and in a festive mood. I rarely dream but this was so vivid and i remembered it in detail after i woke.

      I dreamt that I had a huge zit on my cheek. It hurt a little and it growed every day. One day im a classroom where a woman whom I assumed was the teacher to a bunch of kids that looked 7-9yr olds, I said I needed to pop it. I started squeezing and saw a bunch of blood combined with gray stripes, which I assumed it was pus. I grabbed a napkin and did another squeeze far out of the affected area and saw little lines of "pus" coming out of the pores surrounding it, i cleaned off the excess with the first napkin.

      Then when I grabbed another napkin, i noticed some of the little stripes of pus were moving, i looked closely and I thought I saw worms. I got scared, told the teacher that I might need to visit the E room and showed her the 2nd napkin, she was shooked. I went to check the 1st napkin and then I touched it the big line of pus had eues and cracked bloody skin, realizing it was a snake I fanted and then I woke up hyperventilating.

      This was a dream in a nap, not at night time and it really concerned me because I felt terrorized more than I've been in ny life. I've experienced horrible car crashes, horrible weather conditions and this still terrorized me more than those experiences... If someone knows something that might help me find meaning to this PLEASE email me!

      I had a dream that I came upon a beautiful multicolored snake. Blue is the color that most stood out, but there were other colors as well. At first I was startled and afraid it would try to bite me. But as I spoke softly to it, I realized it was friendly and it even allowed me to pet it under the chin. It seemed to enjoy being pet. Then, all of a sudden, it appeared that it was trying to bite me, so I was trying to figure out how to catch it behind it's head to keep it from biting me.

      That is all I remember.

      My interpretation is that possibly someone who is being nice to me is just as likely to attack me so I should keep up my guard.

      I have just turned 53. I am a white Australian suburban middle class woman. Ihad never had a dream that had a snake in it before. It was a small skinny snake and it's fangs were disproportionately long, for the smallness of it's head and body. In a seemingly slow manner, as I watched, it sunk its fangs into the cushioned plumpest part of the palm of my left hand, below the thumb. I pinched it's head, firmly, with the thumb and index finger of my right hand, and carefully tilted back the head, to pull it off, amazed at the length of it's fangs and how deeply they had penetrated the flesh of my hand. It was painless; both during and after. I must have fatally injured it. I put its limp, damaged body into my pocket. I later took it out and showed it to a neighbour, to see if he thought it was venomous. As I had not experienced any ill effects, I had already assumed it was not. I, however, had some lingering concern, in my dream, about the experience. This lingering concern/wondering/unsure feeling stayed with me, for a time, after I awoke. I found myself pondering the dream's meaning, as a snake is a bit of an ancient and superstitious thing to pop into a modern, city woman's dream. It didn't seem relevant to my life, or the sort of dreams I usually have.

      I saw that I went to a temple of lord shiva. A snake was there coiled around the shiva linga. Suddenly the snake started chasing me. I was running as fast as I could but could not match up. Thus I had to give in. As I am an ardent devotee of maheshwari I started to pray to her fervently. So, the snake could not bite me but coiled around my left leg. What does it mean?

      I am a christian, I am an African. In my dream, I got out of my bed in the morning only later to find a snake wrapped around a crocodile on my bed, where I put my head (realized that they were there even when I was still asleep- in my dream). I got really scared. Did not want to sleep in my bed at night. For 3 nights I was sleeping in a relative's room without saying the real reason, as the snake was still wrapped around the crocodile on my bed for 2 nights and the 3rd night the snake was all alone, not on my bed, but in some hole discovered in my room by a little baby that I do not know in real life- discovery made only in the morning after the 3rd night and this baby calmly pulled the snake from the hole as its behind was sticking out and the baby held it and told me to not be afraid as the snake is not venomous. I was not scared then, but surprised that a baby was actually not afraid of the snake.

      Why 3 nights?

      What happened to the crocodile on the 3rd night? Disappeared to where?

      Who is this baby (there is no baby at my house)

      Why my bed?

      Why were those dangerous reptiles on the side of the bed where I put my head?

      I really do not understand

      Please assist,

      In my dream, I was trying to catch a baby rattlesnake that had wondered into the house(it was not my house that I live in now, it was an apartment, but I think I lived there) It was curled up, shaking it's rattle, ready to strike, I tried to grab it from behind its head so it couldn't bite me. I was successful in my grab, but the baby rattlesnake was squirming and turning its head, I was losing my grip and it bit me on my left hand, as I pulled his big fat fangs out of my hand, I dropped the snake. I yelled for my son to get the Antivenom and give me a shot and he did. Then the scene repeated itself with me trying to catch the snake, being bitten, and given the Antivenom. The 3rd attempt I was trying to get the baby rattlesnake in a box. I was trying to save it. I remember not wanting to kill it, I just wanted a safe place to put it so I could get it outside. Right before I got it into the box, it bit me again. I remember my concern was wrapping the box with tape so it couldn't escape again. I wàs not worried about the Antivenom shot, just saving this damn snake and getting it into the box. I was given the Antivenom again by my youngest son for the third time. I did not wake up right away, I sat in my dream feeling relieved it was over.

      I want to know the significance of my dream, why a baby rattlesnake? Why was it was so strong? Why my youngest son was giving me Antivenom shot? Why I wasn't afraid? (THE FIRST BITE SCARED THE CRAP OUT OF ME, BUT THEN I YELLED FOR MY SON TO GET THE ANTIVENOM, AND ALL FEAR WENT OUT THE WINDOW THE OTHER TWO TIMES I WAS BIT.)

      I dreamt of snakes... It goes like this... someone is trying to make fun of snakes, variety of small ones. Then he passed it on me and closed me in a room with those. He told me to find the most poisonous one and kill it. Because I was afraid of those, I tried to find a way to get out of the room. Lucky me, someone helped me out. But walking in the roads, there were lots of small snakes scattered fighting each other. Then, me and the guy, who's helping me out, found someone bitten. I came near the one bitten andby assisted him. Since my goal was to kill the most poisonous snake, the guy who volunteered to help me tried to grab the bunch of fighting snakes and look for the most venomous one. Some of those were already wounded and some were beheaded. But as he grabbed the snakes, one of those crawled up to his face and bit him on his chin. Before anything happens to me, I woke up terrified. I really don't know why someone had made fun of the snakes and made me find the most venomous in lots of bunches of snakes.

      I had a horrible dream about a snake. I was in a radom garden when i saw this long snake and i had the sudden urge to chase after it. Then it all of a sudden became a challenge, like i needed to catch the snake-in a certain way; i had to grab it by its tail and swing it into a whole in this little outside room painted red. But everytime i tried to grab it, it would turn around to bite me and i would quickly let go before it did. But i still did not give up trying to get this thing, no matter how much it hissed at me. I am so confused about what this snake represents.

      For the first time I had a dream about a snake. I was going to loo and ppl in the front were crying snake, snake be careful. I heard its sigh and I courageously caught it and it had bitten me four times on my hand. I just came out of the rear end of the caravan and threw the snake away without fear. Told everyone that I am bitten by a snake and no one was barely paying any attention. Some one was saying your father is fetching your uncle to go to hospital and they came. We got to an auto they sat behind the auto while I sat in the front seat and we rushed off to hospital and I remember coming alone out of hospital rushing out to piss off. All the time I was wearing a ray ban glasses.

      I dreamt this last night....I was walking past a disgarded tire and I looked at the tire to see a snake skin. I took another look and saw that it was a snake that was burnt from tail to neck but its head was not burnt. It could barely move its head but when it did, you could tell it was hurt and it could barely move its burnt body. I told someone (male) who came and saw the snake (now on the grass), stepped on its head and had a machete to chop its head off. The machete bounced off its head and could not break the skin. Later, I saw the snake on a gurney in an ambulance headed to hospital to heal it.
