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 snakes has 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.

What is the biblical meaning of snakes in a dream?
Even though the symbolism of snakes is negative in the Bible, there are cases where these animals can represent something positive. To dream of a poisonous snake represents feelings about corruption or contamination. Snakes in dreams also tend to reflect fear of total failure or severe loss of a person. Feelings about a person or a problem ruining you completely permanently. A dangerous or difficult problem that you want to avoid.
Areas of your life that ruin everything associated with them. People who cannot be trusted or who you feel are dangerous to avoid. A snake could also reflect your own lack of integrity or deceptive behavior. Noticing you being a "malicious asshole". A snake can also represent a bad influence or a person you don't like. A person who does not have family values.
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.
