What Does It Mean If You Dream Of Snakes?

Dreaming of snakes can be a terrifying experience and can certainly haunt your night. Whether you have visions of them hunting you down, biting you or surrounding you, the symbolism of the snake is strong, and it is also linked to an erotic charge. Susan Taylor reveals everything you need to know here.

We wrongly assume that dreaming of a snake represents a bad omen, but the meaning of this animal is much more positive than we think. In our culture, reptiles are often associated with evil, but in your dreams, this slithery animal is mainly there to help you get through a difficult period!

Dreaming of snake: Multiple interpretations

The snake is scary. We fear its bite, and we fear that it brings death. It is also an animal that sheds and that transforms. The change, the symbolic death, and the passage from one state to another are one of the main interpretations associated with dreaming of a snake.

Present on the caduceus of doctors, it also symbolizes healing and well-being. In a dream, its appearance is almost always positive. Even if the snake puts you in danger, don't worry, your unconscious is only trying to tell you to let your instinct and your emotions speak a little more than your reason.

Is the snake a phallic symbol?

This long reptile, that crawls and stands upright, easily leads us on the path of male sex and more generally of sexuality. In the Bible, the serpent is the one who encourages Eve to eat the forbidden fruit. In the Judeo-Christian culture, the snake is not seen in a very good light, and seeing it in a dream can indicate a complex sexuality. An impulse that we try to forbid ourselves, a fantasy with which we are not at ease, but the analysis depends above all on what the snake does in our dream.

If a snake stings or bites

This dream means that your sexual energy is being misused and is turning against you. You may be ashamed of your desires. If a snake also prevents you from bathing or washing, it is because your unconscious mind does not want you to repress your desires any longer. Become aware of this desire and decide whether to succumb to it, rather than hiding it.

Charming a snake with a flute

Becoming a snake charmer or seeing one in a dream is proof that you are in control of your sexuality, that you are in agreement with your partner, that you are gaining confidence. The snake which rises up can also mean that a new desire rises in us in front of a new situation which takes shape.

The snake, the healer

The snake represents a sexual energy, but it is also an energy that pushes us to live and transform. Thus, some dreams refer to an upcoming healing, especially if the dreamer is in a weak situation and is suffering physically or psychically.

A snake slithers but does not frighten

This dream means that your strength will return. You will be able to overcome the trials you are facing. This dream acts as a guide, and a support that invites you to keep hope.

What do different color snakes represent?

Depending on the color of the snake, the interpretation can also vary:

  • A white snake: spiritual energy
  • A green snake: healthy life and strong intuition
  • A pink and blue snake: tenderness, flirtation or light and pleasant love
  • A brown snake: balance and warmth
  • A red snake: passion or toxic love
  • A yellow snake: understanding or hypocrisy
  • A black snake: a love or friendship relationship that is not reciprocated

Animals often have messages for us when they appear in our dreams. Do you dream of a spider? Here is the meaning, and what is the interpretation of a cat dream?
