What does it mean to dream about a snake? Snakes are symbols of fear, meaning that you are afraid of something or someone. It’s important to remember the details surrounding the snake in your dream because these details can explain what meaning is attached to the snake.
Snakes often appear as representations of evil, anger and negative feelings like jealousy and envy. You may also associate snakes with sin or sexual temptation. Snakes can also represent wisdom, renewal and fertility if you were dreaming about this type of snake. Whatever meaning you attribute to the snake, keep in mind that it represents some aspect of yourself (positive or negative). The way you react to the snake in your dream will depend on whether or not this meaning fits your character; if it doesn’t fit, try to think of other meaning that might apply.
Sleeping with a snake can symbolize death by poisoning, illness or physical danger. If you dream of killing the snake this symbolizes your fear of letting go (or that something or someone is preventing you from moving forward). You may also be experiencing feelings of guilt and trying to atone for past wrongs done to others.
Snakes are often associated with themes like rebirth, immortality and spiritual transformation; these themes will be present if the snake appears in your dreams. A snake’s ability to shed its skin is an important part of many myths and legends; it symbolizes renewal, change and growth. Snatches like raising their head above water suggest movement toward a goal, and in general snakes can be seen as guides that will help you reach your destination.
Snakes are also associated with transformation and shapeshifting; they may appear in dreams to warn about physical or psychological changes.
A snake can also suggest a loss of power, meaning that something is preventing you from moving forward in life. It could symbolize some sort of fear and anxiety or dread about what might happen if you were to move forward (or let go).
Keep in mind that different people interpret symbols differently; meaning is never universal when it comes to symbolism. That said, the meaning behind snake dreams is fairly consistent no matter who interprets them, so there’s no harm in applying one meaning to your dream. Remember that forcing meaning onto a dream is less important than examining meaning that already exists.
