Dream meaning: Snake

Dream interpretation SnakeSnakes have quite complicated and varied symbolism, depending on personal experience. How is it moving, is it threatening? How many snakes? Snakes like on the medical emblem, can signal an especially healing dream. Since snakes are found in dark places and water, dream about snakes can represent magical forces, our own primal energies or instincts, as the personification of the unconscious.
In mythology snake with the tree can represent process of becoming conscious. The snake swallowing itself, is related to cycle, the wheel, the Great Mother archetype.
Snakes can be temptation about some situation in the waking life. Snakes can represent renewal or resurrection since they shed their skin.

For a woman to dream that a dead snake is biting her, foretells she will suffer from malice of a pretended friend.

To dream of snakes, is a foreboding of evil in its various forms and stages.

To see them wriggling and falling over others, foretells struggles with fortune and remorse.

To kill them, you will feel that you have used every opportunity of advancing your own interests, or respecting that of others. You will enjoy victory over enemies.

To walk over them, you will live in constant fear of sickness, and selfish persons will seek to usurp your place in your companion’s life.

If they bite you, you will succumb to evil influences, and enemies will injure your business.

To dream that a common spotted snake approaches you from green herbs, and you quickly step aside as it passes you, and after you had forgotten the incident to again see it approaching and growing in dimensions as it nears you, finally taking on the form of an enormous serpent; if you then, after frantic efforts, succeed in escaping its attack, and altogether lose sight of it, it foretells that you will soon imagine you are being disobeyed and slighted, and things will go on from bad to worse. Sickness, uneasiness and unkindness will increase to frightful proportions in your mind; but they will adjust themselves to a normal basis, and by the putting aside of imaginary trouble, and masterfully shouldering duties, you will be contented and repaid.

To dream that a snake coils itself around you and darts its tongue out at you, is a sign that you will be placed in a position where you will be powerless in the hands of enemies, and you will be attacked with sickness.

To handle them, you will use strategy to aid in overthrowing opposition.

To see hairs turn into snakes, foretells that seeming insignificant incidents will make distressing cares for you.

If snakes turn into unnatural shapes, you will have troubles which will be dispelled if treated with indifference, calmness and will power.

To see or step on snakes while wading or bathing, denotes that there will be trouble where unalloyed pleasure was anticipated.

To see them bite others, foretells that some friend will be injured and criticised by you.

To see little snakes, denotes you will entertain persons with friendly hospitality who will secretly defame you and work to overthrow your growing prospects.

To see children playing with them, is a sign that you will be nonplussed to distinguish your friends from your enemies. For a woman to think a child places one on the back of her head, and she hears the snake’s hisses, foretells that she will be persuaded to yield up some possession seemingly for her good, but she will find out later that she has been inveigled into an intrigue in which enemies will tantalize her. To see snakes raising up their heads in a path just behind your friend, denotes that you will discover a conspiracy which has been formed to injure your friend and also yourself. To think your friend has them under control, denotes that some powerful agency will be employed in your favor to ward off evil influences.

For a woman to hypnotize a snake, denotes your rights will be assailed, but you will be protected by law and influential friends.

    Hi !! I’m from India and recently i had a dream which i have no clue of what it means… I saw three of my school friends two of whom i cant recall now and one of them i recall very strongly.. the four of us were together.. the two who i cant recall were talking among themselves while the third one had a white snake with red head around him and he was laughing nd trying to frighten me with the snake… he brought it close to me and placed it on my left shoulder… it moved and went under my arms.. with its head just about jutting out from behind my arm where i squeezed it tightly scared that it might bite me.. hence i held on tight so as not to give it room or an opportunity to bite me.. it didn’t bite me… i was so frozen… my sleep broke !! Now after two days after this dream i wake up and see a baby snake the size little bigger than my middle finger just 3 feet away from my leg wriggling… i clicked a pic of it. i didn’t kill it rather i picked it up with a twig and threw it out of my house.. Some points to note :-
    1) i stay in the city and in an area which is very commercialized and well populated… there is no clue from where the snake came…
    2) this friend with the snake and the others in my dream were my batch-mates in school who i had a very good relation with… i am now 30 yrs old and not in touch with any of them after passing out from school…
    Could anyone kindly assist me to decode what this perhaps means… Your help would be much appreciated.

    I dreamt of going in to my back garden and seeing two coral snakes but the one on the left turned into a hosepipe and the one on the right slithered away. I walked back inside to tell my mum (I was excited because I love snakes especially coral snakes) and my mum asked where it was. I looked out of the front window and it was on the grass, I went outside and picked it up and walked back inside the snake had coiled itself around my arm/wrist and then I woke up. What does this dream mean? I can’t be overcoming my fear of snakes because I don’t have one. I’ve handled a lot of snakes in the past.

  • Sara // May 27, 2014 at 8:14 pm

    I’ve been trying to figure out a dream I had just the other night. It’s always hard to retell my dreams but I will try my best. I just remember seeing someone in a certain area and being bit by a black snake but the area they were in was like an area only they could be in…like you couldn’t walk in that area but anyway! After I seen they were pretty much going to be dead anyway I started to run and i was told not to go into any of the houses wherever we were & I did anyway & there were lots! Of black snakes and they were just biting my back and throat and I ran out & got to this one house…I knew the people somehow. There was a middle aged man I had to sneak by and I went in and talked to this old couple to ask them to take me to the hospital .. For some reason the middle aged man did not want me around and didn’t want the old couple to help …but we finally made it to the “hospital” and there was a doctor who actually deals with only snake bites but for some reason she said they were going to have to cut open my back where my spine is & just give me stitches lol but that’s all I could remember but I did wake up with a really bad back pain and my throat was hurting& super sore so I think that’s why in my dream I had the snakes bite me there! I wish I could explain more about the snakes. There was more to it but I can’t remember it all.

    I dreamed of a snake and a spider the snake was chasing the spider but the spider dissappeared and a mouse appeared. The mouse then chased the snake. It ran a far distance from me but then the snake turned around and came back and bit my left arm. But not long after, the mouse jumped on the snake and I woke up. The snake was a gray color with a big head. The mouse was decent size and fluffy white.

    I dreamt that I was with an Aboriginal Elder (a wise lady of many teachings), she was teaching me of our Aboriginal culture, she taught me how to cook in a camp fire by heating up rocks and placing them on the meat. We went for a walk for her to teach me more, and came across a very angry disturbed nest of bees, escaping their hive. She told me to run back to camp, we both ran back and made it to safety. She then had caught about four smaller snakes, one was green and yellow with diamond shaped markings which was non poisonous, there was a brown snake which is very poisonous in Australia, and there where another two which one was yellow and I forget the last ones colour. We cooked them up on the camp fire, and I was expecting them to taste bad. She picked one up and showed me the easiest way to eat them, she peeled the snake back from the tip of its tail, and revealed some white meat, which was divided by I little fine spine, she then peeled back a large strip of the meat and ate the meat, as she peeled back more the snakes belly was revealed, it looked like little black intestines. So I followed her instructions carefully and ate a small piece if meat, expected it to taste bad but it tasted pretty good, so I continued to eat more, bigger pieces, I was eating the green and yellow diamond pattern, non poisonous one. whist eating it I was curious wondering how to eat the poisonous one. I said that if I was use too eating snake and the natural animals I would probly eat it all the time instead of junk like McDonalds. It was over all a pleasant dream.. what does this dream mean please??

  • Sha // Sep 24, 2013 at 10:07 am

    I hardly ever remember what I dream about, so when I do I take them as a sign. This one confuses me though. I was with two or three other people (I don’t recall the people) and we are in the jungle. All of a sudden we begin to fill part of the jungle and make a lake or small sea. I asking why they had done that because we first had to clear all of the snake nests down there and that now they will invade our swimming hole. We jump in and panic seizes over me, I began to grab and throw the snakes out of the water. I look unto the now shore and there is a huge pile of dead snakes, varying in size but they all look about the same. A few snakes wriggle back in the water from the pile and began to swim close around me, to where I can feel them brushing and circling around my arm. I continue to try to throw them out but to no avail.

  • effie // Jul 31, 2013 at 12:56 am

    I dreamed of a green long snake attacking me in a very threatening way but I managed to grab it by the neck very very tight. I was squeezing it so much but the snake was still trying very hard to find a way to bite me. So I was squeezing it even more till I could kill it, but it wouldnt die. It just kept on attacking me constantly and I was freaking out in my dream thinking, “Why does it want to bite me so bad?” Anyway in the end I managed to make his neck bleed but if I remember correctly it didnt die! Please help me understand what this dream means. I am very worried.

I saw skinny black tall snakes lots of them on my hand, then they got into my legs and my body, my bones under skin. They were around my chest and heart. I was taking them out and breaking them in half. I felt no pain. I called 911, no one was and knew what to do. I said kill them remove them I may die. But I was not dying! I kept taking them off my body and killing them. My mom died few yrs ago but she was in my dream. The snakes had round small teeth. It was scarey though when I woke up thinking about it!

    In my dream there was a snake coiled inside the bottom of my leg. I could see it moving inside me, struggling to get out. I squeezed it from one side and it began to come out head first, a white snake slithering out of my leg. Then tiny red worms or leaches began to wiggle out of the pores of my skin on my leg and I began to search for them and pull them out one by one as fast as I could. very creepy.

    I have a dream that there is a black snake on my neck. His tail is in my left hand and his mouth in my right, but I don’t hold it. My hands are open. The snake stays normal. I move my thumb over it so many times. After a second the snake starts to move his head upward and backward tightly. I get scared at that moment and try to get him off of my neck, but the snake doesnt move. It does not bite me. Like a kid not leaving his dad. I am 19 years old and dont know what. My dreamz wake me up at 12:15 am and I don’t get back to sleep after this dream.

  • Jessica M // Nov 14, 2012 at 8:55 am

    I have this same dream for 16 years now. (26 now). Where I am outside in grass, all of a sudden I see a snake. Im scared I try to scream though cannot. I pick the snake up, and spin it around my head, let go and he’s now chasing me. Sometimes its a little different the dream. Though I always pick it up and swing it. Any idea? Usually dreaming about snakes, is also a sign of sexual frustration, though wondering if there is another meaning as its the same dream over (not every night. Just now and then sometimes months apart)

  • Nicky // Nov 12, 2012 at 11:53 am

    I had a dream I was in some unknown store. I was walking around, looking for something or shopping and I passed this woman and child who noticed my green snake. The child reached out to touch it. For some reason, I knew it was going to strike her, so I gripped it behind it’s head. I noticed that it became angry when I did that and so I knew it was going to try and bite me. The snake then opened its mouth so wide in attempt to bite me. I gripped it even harder because of it. It continued struggling to bite me, then I woke up because of my baby, but it never did bite me…

  • Lola // Oct 16, 2012 at 2:51 am

    This morning, I had a dream, of two different snakes coming to me, and I was not afraid of them. Each of the two snakes came to me one by one, and I told each one that came to me, “don’t bite me.” It was funny, they came to my ankle, and just place their mouth around my ankle and not bite down. It was gentle, and each one, did that and moved on… So what does this mean??

  • Deadrock // Sep 21, 2012 at 1:39 pm

    I had a dream where i had to journey across a desert, and a massive yellow snake rose out of the sand. i thought it was trying to kill me but then i realised it was my freind. we journeyed for days and nights, and he would curl up around me to protect me. eventually, i got to a modern day town and got them to sign a peace treaty. When i left, i rowed across a lake at night, with the snake gliding beside me. men with guns came and killed the snake, and i journeyed back home alone. I woke up crying, and sometimes i wish it hadn’t died :/

  • Antonia // Sep 6, 2012 at 4:01 pm

    In my dream I was with my smallest child sitting outside & suddenly I saw a cobra sit up next to my son swaying back & forth. Then before I could reach my son the cobra struck him on his calf. Just as soon after I grabbed him & found myself running trying to save his life while at the same time sucking & sucking the venom from his calf. I tried to spit it out but nothing would come out. I could feel the venom oozing in my mouth. When I tried draining it from my child. Nothing, I could spit it out. I just felt like all that matters is that I save my son & just to suck it out from him…. I was crying in my sleep & knew this was the end of my life…. What could a dream like that mean.

  • masedi // Sep 4, 2012 at 12:49 am

    I consider myself a dreamer. I can have about 7 dreams a night, but last night a dream of walking through the mountains to see a farm which I had bought. The fist thing in my mind was “There is no way that I’ll farm here.” And suddenly I saw a pathway which lead me to a nice piece of land which looked to have been a farm many years ago (it was surrounded by mountains.) I realizee there was a giant apple tree in the middle. When I got there I saw a very big and long snake lying there. I just moved away and continued inspecting my farm then I climbed some stones and looked across and realized that there used to be a farmhouse there. As I looked at the apple tree in the middle I saw a huge red snake with huge segments on its body moving into the tree and suddenly the big snake made its way out of the Farm for the bigger red snake and suddenly there were snakes all over the farm. I was not scared at all. I slowly walked out of the farm.

    I was in a house I didn’t know, and my family was down stairs. I went into the bathroom and there were two baths in a row, but the lay out of the bathroom I knew. And I stood on the top of a bath (not sure what I was doing) but then I glanced down and saw an extremely long huge snake. It was black and brown. I could clearly see the pattern on it. The snake just sat there and looked at me. I ran away and when I went back later the snake could not be found.

  • Tonya // Jul 3, 2012 at 11:32 am

    I had a dream I was trying to cut a coral snakes head off. The snake was bigger than a normal coral snake though, and then it was another type of snake and it got a way. Some kids that were walking home from school started playing with it in the road and I yelled to leave it alone. Then two kids, a boy and a girl, walked by and it struck the boy in the eye and I don’t know where it struck girl, but the boy fell over and girl came to me and her tongue was going numb. I was calling 911 - Then I woke up.

    I had a dream a month ago when i was bitten by a snake on my right hand and someone removed it. I felt like i was getting dizzy and started looking for help and no one helped.

    Last night I had a dream that I was outdoors in a strange place I had never been before. It wasn’t dark out but it was late evening with enough sunlight left that I could see the hundreds of different kinds of snakes before me. I wasn’t afraid at all! I just had at’em. killing every single one with ease. After killing all of the snakes a HUGE red cobra with it’s neck flared out and fangs showing charged me.. I reached out with my hand grabbed it around the neck keeping it out of reach so that it could not bite me. Then I began hitting it in the face with my fist and anything I could get my free hand on. This battle went on for what seemed some time then my boyfriend woke me up… I didn’t remember the dream until several ours later when I was at work and looked down at a patch of overgrown grass and I thought to myself… “That looks snaky” Then the memory of the dream just came floodding back as if I were remembering a memory….. I wonder, what does my mean?

    Last night I had a black snake in my dream. I was standing in a tree to save myself from some other animals… But I didn’t notice the snake which was already there in the tree. It tried twice to bite me… The second time it bit my left hand….. It was an awful feeling…

  • kim // Feb 1, 2012 at 3:16 am

    I had this dream of this black snake that was on the ground at the foot of my bed coiled up in like an attack mode with its eyes set on me and I was just watching it and was too close it struck twice and bit my hand or arm the second time and I somehow got ahold of it with my good hand and had it by its head and ran to find my dad for help. My dad didn’t come to take the snake from me he was scared to do anything he wouldn’t even help but he had a friend that stepped up and took the snake from me and that’s when I woke up. What does this mean?

    I had a dream in which I was walking and noticed a yellow big snake. I made a run for it but when I turned around I saw the snake in front of me with his mouth all covered with something clear. Even though the snake’s mouth was covered it still bit me.

  • Doris // Oct 25, 2011 at 1:30 pm

    I dreamed of two black snakes. I skinned them, one dead the other still alive and moving. I asked two men why that one snake was still alive, and they said to watch out for the snake’s teeth.

  • floo // Oct 17, 2011 at 10:19 pm

    I had a dream that my throat was slit open, about 2 inches and 2 skinny black slimy snakes came out of my throat whenever; one longer than the other alternating. I was afraid to swallow because I don’t want the snakes to go to my stomach. I was also told to take an x-ray of my body but I was scared that I might see the shapes of snakes all through my body thru the x-ray. Then I woke up. I don’t know what this means…

  • Michaela // Sep 25, 2011 at 5:18 am

    I’m just confused, the snake in the picture up there on this page was in my dream. I saw him at a beach and I threw rocks/pebbles at him. Then he chased after my mom and never went after me, though. Then my dog bit him.

  • oneofmany // Sep 15, 2011 at 10:32 am

    In my dream my boyfriend and I went to a sort of group home for adults to see a friend of his. When we arrived, my brother for some reason, pulled in behind us, with his family in his truck. He got out, smiled, said something that I am unable to remember and left. Now the home that we were visiting was a strange place - the only male living there it seemed was my boyfriends friend, and the atmosphere was cold, with zero life. There was no music to be played, no-one was allowed to sing, or do anything that represented life and being alive. Anyway we went inside to the friends room, a small room, very little furniture, and after a few minutes I got bored and decided to go outside.

    When I got outside I thought, “I am going to sing”, and began to hum out loud. As I began to sing I looked to my left and noticed three pillars with three medium sized black snakes, red spots, sitting on top of them. The snakes descended to the ground and began to follow me, so I climbed on top of a mound of dirt and as they were ascending toward me I pulled a sword form my pocket and sliced off the snakes’ heads, then I woke up.

    Can someone tell me what they believe this dream can mean? thx

  • N // Sep 14, 2011 at 4:29 am

    I had a very rare Scary, Snake Dream.

    One of my Friends was complaining about her heavy hair. I was checking the same and among her long tresses, I find a snake coiled. I get scared and keep her parents informed. Slowly we remove the Snake and place it on Window Sill. Her Dad checks it out and finally the Snake is killed.

  • jess // Aug 27, 2011 at 12:30 pm

    soñe que una serpiente negra con cabeza azul me alfateaba mi miedo hacia ella y abria su ocico y se iba hacia mi cara y el veneno me lo echaba a la boca hasta quedarme paralizada y no poder mover mi cuerpo..

  • kota // Aug 1, 2011 at 2:51 am

    I don’t think I’ve ever dreamed of snakes before - I don’t have much interest in them. Last night, however, I had a very vivid dream in which I ate a snake and I specifically remember having to pull large, bitter tasting chunks out of my teeth. I have weird dreams quite often, but this one just seemed extra bizarre.

  • Bonnie // Jul 19, 2011 at 11:41 pm

    I dreamt of beautiful rainbow coloured snakes who needed t get into water and without which, they were dying. I was at a beach and I was scared of them, but nonetheless, I picked up one and dropped it back into the sea whereby, it swam off happily…the second one, I could not catch, so I covered it with wet sand and it made itself a neat burrow. (I wonder what could this dream mean) !!

  • Matt // Jul 15, 2011 at 5:39 pm

    I had a dream about a really fat blue snake coming up from underground. The setting was nighttime and there was a party going on with drinking and drugs. Family members were there, including the dogs. So everybody notices the blue snake and just gathers around it. It opens it’s mouth, but no one’s scared, just very interested in it.

  • Terry // Jul 5, 2011 at 5:04 pm

    I had a dream about a coral snake floating away from me. I had a tortoise baby turtle in my hands. It jumped out of my hands and the coral snake bit it on the leg. I was so sad about it, I cried and cried.

  • Carmen // Jun 24, 2011 at 9:19 pm

    My dream was terrible. I can’t remember the first bits but it was all very confusing. Then towards the end my cousin manipulated a stick quickly under a building that in my dream was where I stayed.

    Out came a snake when she moved the stick. I held in my arms my daughter of 4 months. This snake was shortish but fat. It was a cobra so was new in my dream. The snake was spitting and hissing and seemed set on getting myself and my baby.

    My cousin was trying to hit it away with a stick but this snake wasn’t having it. I ran with my child in my arms but I was too slow. So I pulled myself up onto a large window ledge. I placed my baby on my lap in between my arms so she was out of the snake’s view, as my logic was that the snake would see me and bite me.

    I closed my eyes bracing myself for the searing pain which would surely come with the bite and thought of all the things I’d miss when the venom kills me, breaking my heart to think I wouldn’t see my little girl grow up. It took a little longer than I had expected so with hope in my heart I opened my eyes and found the snake had some how come across my lap and had bitten my daughter square in the face. It was hanging off her cheek.

    I can not tell you the sick feeling a felt and the pure rage. I pulled the snake’s mouth back so as not to rip my little girls face. I pulled the snake off her and was holding it. I was screaming for my husband, begging him to suck out the poison quickly while I have the snake in hand.

    The whole time I couldn’t see my daughter’s face. From the time I opened my eyes to discover the snake on her cheek I only saw the side of her face. She didn’t move or make a sound.

  • Barry // Jun 23, 2011 at 6:28 am

    I had a dream that I was being confronted by a cobra, I seized him by the neck and he kept trying to bite me, his fangs did scratch my skin and I could see the venom pumping through his fangs but he was unable to puncture my skin. After several attempts of him trying to bite me I flung him out of sight.

  • Nomwe // Jun 12, 2011 at 11:17 pm

    I saw the brown skin of snake on top of the green grass. Then when I changed my position to head facing upward I saw very long snake. It was light colored, looked yellowish and had a small head. Snake was standby doesn’t move. I told my self that the snake was changing its skin.

  • Rebecca // Jun 4, 2011 at 12:10 pm

    I dreamed of a bright green almost turquoise snake. Very large and it looked at me as it crawled away. I was not frightened.

  • aerah // May 5, 2011 at 8:18 pm

    I had a dream last night there was a colorful snake that starts from small snake and grows to be a very long snake. I don’t know if it’s chasing me, but I remember the snake crawling around my body and in my side.. I also remember seeing my cousin in my dream. I ask her to hold the snake in her hand…

  • Tanya // May 4, 2011 at 8:21 pm

    I had a dream that I was with my stepsisters and we had had a massive fight. I was feeling really sad, but they were fine. Then one of my stepsisters gave me a box with about 4 snakes that looked like they were dead in it. So for some reason, still feeling sad and crying, I threw the box up in the air and thousands of snakes fell out. Lots were wrapped around me and I was laying on others. I was terrified and my stepsister got them all off of me by picking them up by their heads with tweezers.

    We packed all the snakes away in the box again and I was talking to someone I dldn’t recognize about them. I threw them up again and the same thing happened, only this time, before my stepsister could get them off with tweezers, some of the snakes bit me. But I wasn’t as terrified as I was the first time. They were all little snakes in different bright colours, and the bites didn’t really hurt - only a little bit.

    I really need help finding out what this dream means.

  • Anna // Apr 22, 2011 at 12:01 pm

    Had a dream that I was at work and I went to the box where we keep work and there was a dead snake in the box. The skin was there but the insides of the snake was missing. Afterward, I was walking and a flat snake crawled up my pants leg. I though it bit me but when I went to the doctor I was told it did not. When the snake went up my pant leg I was able to grab it and hold onto it until I got to the doctor’s office.

    In my dream when I was given my pants back I noticed that my pants had been pressed and looked new. Can anyone tell me what this means? I am so confused.

  • Don // Apr 10, 2011 at 5:21 pm

    I’ve had many snake dreams so heres one:

    I was in my backyard during the daytime, and I was with a little girl (did not recognize who she was) she had blonde hair, medium length. She had went into my neighbors yard and I went to go follow her through the gate of the fenced in yard. Then all of a sudden a dark colored snake came out of the ground and wrapped around my leg and curled around my left arm. I used my right hand and squeezed his head furiously and screamed at it him, stunning the snake, I through him into the air far away from me and the little girl. We ran back into my backyard and as we did the fence started turning into little marching spiders, then spiders and snakes started coming up through the ground in my neighbors yard. That’s when I woke up.

    The 2nd one I’ve dreamed of had me near the ocean, a place where me and my family used to go fishing at. There were rocks in the water I would step on. In my dream, hundreds of snakes would come up to me as each wave came crashing in, surrounding my legs. One snake actually bit me, but I felt no pain, I did not react to it at all. That’s when I woke up.

    The 3rd one, I was standing on the porch at my house, and I saw a huge (maybe about the size of a large dog) yellow snake eating a smaller snake. The snake finished eating and then set his eyes on me. I ran back into the house and the snake kept trying to knock the door down. Eventually someone killed it, I don’t remember who, but we plopped its dead body onto the kitchen table and the other little snake he had eaten came out of his mouth, along with a lot of other snakes. That’s when I woke up from that dream.

  • Ray // Mar 18, 2011 at 6:32 am

    I saw a yellow snake which was coming near my 2 year old son and then I shouted, “snake, snake!” Neighbours came around and one of the men killed the snake by crushing the head with a sharp object. The next morning was my son’s birthday and I had this dream in the early morning of his birthday.

  • Jamore // Mar 1, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    I dreamed that rattler was in the foundation of my house. Each time I tied to strike his head he would dodge but did not bite. He appeared to be entertaining himself. I wonder what does this mean or indicate?

  • Dawn // Feb 28, 2011 at 7:24 am

    I had a dream I was outside on my patio, even though it wasn’t one I had seen before and I kept hearing a slight scraping/sliding sound. I had a feeling it was a snake but couldn’t see it yet because there were potted plants in the way. Suddenly I saw it come out from between two pots and got very scared because it seemed very aggressive towards me. I climbed up on top of the table I was sitting at and it started to come towards me with it’s mouth open. The whole time there was a loud humming/scraping/hissing sound with it. My male cat started to stalk it and distract it and the snake lunged at him a couple of times, then my litle female got into it but seemed more like she was playing with it and I think she got bitten on the head. More concerned about my cat, I got down and carefully picked my cat up to bring her inside where I saw my ex-husband just sitting there. I yelled at him for letting the cats out and that there was a big black snake out there trying to attack everything. That’s when i woke up.

  • lacedric // Feb 26, 2011 at 7:35 pm

    I was in a dark place and on a hill there were a lot of snakes around, spotted and possibly rattle snakes. I fell and was bitten in the back by many snakes. Then I was being helped by people but was in fear of death. Then I woke up in a very bad mood.

  • sheldon // Feb 14, 2011 at 3:59 pm

    My dream was just me in my living room. I walked towards the kitchen and
    there was a big rattlesnake and it was trying to attack and bite me. I was
    backing up with every strike the snake threw at me! So, I grabbed my hockey
    stick that was beside the dining room table and started hitting it with the back
    end of my hockey stick! It was hit and miss so I flipped the stick around and I
    cut of its head with the blade of the hockey stick. Then I was just staring at
    the dead snake in my living room for some time. Then my dad came out of nowhere
    and saw me just looking at this dead rattlesnake in my living room. And he
    grabbed the dead snake and he cooked it and we ate the rattlesnake… Then I woke up from my sleep.

  • gigi // Feb 13, 2011 at 1:32 am

    Last night I dreamed of a long spiky black snake. It was trying to bite everyone it came across. I was in a hole in the wall store that carried mystical stones and potions and there were random people in the store with me. They knew of the snake roaming the store freely, but they all acted as if they were powerless to capture it. The snake could pop up anywhere and strike.

    So I was watching a woman defending herself against an attack by the snake. She sat at a table and the snake was on the table raised up and striking at her. She just kept blocking it with a pencil in the mouth of the snake. At that moment I felt bad for the snake and I don’t know why, but I thought the woman should treat the snake better than that.

    As soon as I thought it, the snake leaped from the table and tangled itself into my hair and climbed up into my head through my eye sockets giving me an uncomfortable feeling but not painful. It sucked in its spikes and wrapped itself around my brain Then it whispered to me that if I didn’t take care of him and do everything he asks he would squeeze my brain till it popped. I was so frightened that I promised I would, and begged him not to kill me. The snake quickly unwrapped itself from my brain and I could feel the soothing feeling as the snake left through my eyes sockets. Then it went back to taking strikes at the woman at the table.

  • Kristin // Jan 19, 2011 at 5:27 am

    I dreamed that I was in the woods and found myself surrounded by a ring of worm-like snakes that were partially buried underground. I was uncertain as to whether or not I was safe in the center of the ring, so I reacted on instinct and gingerly made my way through the snakes to get to real safety. Although it was more risky to walk through the snakes than maybe to have just stayed put, the other side offered more long-term safety. Being inside the ring didn’t offer any immediate harm to me, but my instincts said harm could be pending.

  • R // Jan 12, 2011 at 10:21 am

    In the city riding bus to work, now at the office working on papers and the scene switches. I am walking home from work, grasslands, blue skies and sunshine. Ahead I see a weird shape like a cloud, black like the a clear night sky, I immediately put a hard crazy face on for defense as I walk by and a young childlike face pops up and says “hello”, the face is pretty, brown skin, light eyes with black hair in braids or twists? I say hello and pass by kept walking, walk walk all of the sudden I am facing a ditch like hill with a path previously made to climb out. I begin to climb and the dirt/sand begins slide back down. I said “how am I going to get out “if I pack the dirt/sand like steps then I can get up and out. I looked to my left and see a huge snake which begins to charge at me quickly. I was afraid and knew I had seconds; I grabbed the dirt/sand made like snowballs and threw two, then left the dream quickly.

  • magali // Jan 10, 2011 at 2:07 pm

    I had a dream of a red snake approaching my neck. He seemed to grow long hair which seemed to be all natural and fine to the touch.

  • biba // Jan 7, 2011 at 12:45 am

    Dreams of snakes normally signify fertility. It means you are either pregnant or about to be. For a guy I don’t know what it means.

  • Jana // Dec 22, 2010 at 11:58 am

    I dreamed that my son had 4 little snakes in a tiny envelope. I wasn’t afraid of them. One may have been a coral snake, others looked like worms. They were not threatening. I told him they needed to be in a bigger envelope so they could breathe easier.

  • Gloria // Dec 17, 2010 at 9:38 am

    I dreamed the same dream twice in one night: a long black snake leaped from the side of my computer desktop and bit me on the stomach.

  • Mahdieh // Dec 14, 2010 at 11:56 pm

    I dreamed that I was in a house that was my house but it looked like it belonged to a poor person. Then, I saw a bunch of little snakes. After that the snakes turned huge and when I walked to the hallway I saw that a snake had eaten my turtle (even though I don’t really have one) and the turtle was at the end of it’s tail standing up and attempting to walk. My mom came and told me that the turtle was going to die because of the snake’s acid. Then, at the end of the hallway I saw two snakes that were coiled around each other. When I turned around I saw a huge red snake slithering towards me. But for some reason I wasn’t scared. It bit me om my right arm a few inches above my hand. It wasn’t venomous but I remember seeing on Animal Planet how some snakes have teeth that hook inwards and it would be hard to rip them off your self. I kept checking it’s mouth and the teeth weren’t hooked so i pulled it off easily. Please tell me what this means.

    P.S. Before I fell asleep I was crying because my friend informed me that she was moving.

  • faith // Dec 14, 2010 at 2:59 am

    In my dream, my sons and I were looking down at a stream of dark water when a black snake bit my oldest son. I then saw two smaller snakes, but they were harmless.

  • Judy // Dec 13, 2010 at 6:27 am

    I dreamt that I was mowing the lawn and a yellow garden snake showed up and coiled around my right foot. It somehow bit me, but I also had to fight with it to get it to uncoil off my foot.

  • qistina // Nov 30, 2010 at 8:25 am

    I had a dream that I was in school and it had a river near by. It was the last day, so we usually have a celebration. Suddenly a huge green serpent appeared, like really huge! It was like the size of a small two story school. In a flash it bit me and left, and I looked at my hand but the bite mark wasn’t there. When I was on my way home, I was bitten again by the same serpent. It kept following me everywhere I went, but then I woke up. My grandma says this dream means that there is someone who likes me. But I’m not quite sure. This is also the first time I have dreamed about this. Hopefully I won’t have this same dream again. It is scary.

    BTW: the hand that I was bitten on, a week back I sprained it. Could it help? Does it also mean that my hand will heal?

  • PIzzaninja // Nov 29, 2010 at 1:25 pm

    I had a dream of a big snake trying to eat a little one, but couldn’t swallow it, and they were struggling… Then I saw the big snake’s head cut off on the ground, but I don’t know whether I’m the one who cut it off.

  • Jessie // Nov 26, 2010 at 10:23 pm

    I dreamt I and someone else (never did see the face -it was more like a dark figure) was walking in a park which had a pond with clear sparkling water. As we walked on the pond’s edge and crossed over boards to the other side I began to see snakes swimming under water and especially a long brown snake with large scales and a huge head. The snake was swimming rapidly under water following me as I continued to walk. At one point I saw small wings/arms extend from its head. It never attempted to strike nor hissed but somehow it was menacing. In the middle of the pond was a tiny snake with its body extended and tail curled up and holding its head above water. I woke up at this point.

  • Georgia // Nov 26, 2010 at 2:22 pm

    I had a dream I was near water and many many snakes would pop out at me and begin to hiss, threateningly. I went to a bed at some point and an enormous cobra as well as another snake were under the bed, slithering around almost guarding it. When I went back to the water with others, the snakes were gone.

  • BeMe // Nov 23, 2010 at 12:32 pm

    I had a dream of walking barefoot on the sand beach As I stepped onto the deck leaving the sand beach behind I “lift up” to the deck and looked down into the ocean water just to see many snakes swimming in the clear to sandy waters. Someone- a lady - dropped a big snake gently between those other snakes for a bath. Big snake was feeling happy for getting to swim! What does that mean?

  • MS J // Nov 12, 2010 at 2:00 pm

    I dreamed of a snake the size of an alligator swallowing a cat whole and when it was killed the belly of snake was slit open and the cat was still alive and jump out running. This remind me of Jonah being swallowed by the whale. Can someone please help me interpret it?

  • Dannisha // Nov 3, 2010 at 8:50 am

    I dreamed I was standing in a room alone with many snakes all around me. They were on the walls and the floor. The snakes did not attempt to bite me or anything. They appeared to be garden snakes.

  • Rob // Nov 2, 2010 at 2:39 pm

    I had a dream I was riding a bike when a rattle snake in the road lunged at me. Slithered around my body under my shirt until it coiled around my neck. Sqeezing tighter and tighter. I was with people I did not know them but they seemed like friends. After awhile they all wanted to leave me there with the snake aroung my neck. I was scared and didnt want them to go. Until another smaller snake came out of the bushes. I jumped, then the rattle snake un-coiled and left. At that point I woke up.

  • jessica // Nov 2, 2010 at 1:31 pm

    I had a dream that a red snake was trying to get in under the bottom of the door. I was holding it out by a towel and it was pushing hard at the towel. I could feel how strong it was. At that point I woke myself up.

  • Mina // Nov 1, 2010 at 8:52 am

    What does a rattle snake symbolize? it was coiled up, shaking its tail, and looking at me. Then as I looked around I noticed there were more of them crawling out from bushes and shrubs and moving towards me.

  • Spot // Oct 22, 2010 at 12:12 pm

    I had a dream where I has trying to hold a snake down just below it’s head with my left hand as it kept twisting and struggling to bite me. It did not bite me.

  • Marie // Oct 20, 2010 at 2:57 pm

    I dreamed about a small light green snake. It fell on the ground and then quickly slithered outside and came back as a green cat with no hair on its body. Then I was sitting around a table eating.

  • Sabina // Aug 7, 2008 at 10:34 am

    I always dream about snakes. Different shapes, different sizes and I’m always scared. Once a snake bit me, most of the times they just come around me or my house and scare me to death - its like I can’t run or do anything but just sit there and watch. It’s an awful feeling. They are gigantic.
