Dreaming of Snakes
Dreaming about Snakes Dreams, interpreting your bad dreams, learn what they mean!  Find out now FREE!

The snake is one of the oldest symbols found in some of the most ancient scriptures. Throughout history, snakes have been used as phallic symbols, and have long been linked to pagan fertility gods. The snake is an emblem of the nurturing earth and also the unknown perils of the underworld.


I, myself, have dreamt of snakes and snake bites and I took this to mean an enemy would be up to no good. Although I think I'm loveable, evidently there are those who wish to put the whammy on me. And wouldn't you know itóbingo! Someone was giving me a difficult time in business and after that I no longer considered that person so friendly.


Depending on who, or whom, and what other host of characters are in your dream of snakes, the meanings of these dreams will vary. But know this, I believe, it isn't a good sign no matter what the scenario. Bad health, loss of money, betrayal, sickness, surrounded by enemies, anything and everything that means trouble can be attributed to a snake dream.

Letís look to Christian imagery, which emphasizes the dark side of this symbol, where itís considered evil as a "snake in the grass." A snake can represent hidden fears, worries and poisonous words. Anything bad can and will be attributed to that creepy, crawly reptile.


Now, if you want to get mystical about the positive interpretations of the snake, let's do. God created the serpent to teach man and woman right from wrong. Then, there were the Ancient Greeks, who believed the snake had extraordinary healing powers, remember those entwined snakes that appear as the medical profession symbol.


Indian Kundalini yoga finds value in the snake too. It represents the life force that rises up your spinal cord. In the Talmud, snakes represent riches and wealth. To kill one meant loss of all your worldly possessions. In a dream, if a snake sheds itsí skin, metaphorically so do we. Rebirth, regeneration, and symbolism renewal are represented here. The good and the bad seem to go hand and hand with the snake dream.


Personally, I don't look at it from the mystical standpoint. But I'm sure some dreams aren't all doom and gloom when the serpent slithers into your subconscious. Like all symbolism, they appear for a reason and that is to put us in touch with our emotions, subconscious stresses, fears, and to foretell future events.


So the next time you dream of a snake, consider that it might be a bad omen, such as sickness, enemies and foreboding messages from slumber land. My suggestion:  Don't become over-the-top stressed out. Take it in stride, smile and tell yourself, "At least I won't end up as someone's shoes or pocketbook. That snake will get it in the end. And I'll forget about that bad dream by lunchtime.Ē

Am grateful my husband is back, During my time of difficulty and heartbreak i was able to find refuge in the hands of Dr.WISE through his act of spell casting that he was able to bring my lover back within 48 hours, my husband left me and the kids for another woman and he said to me that he just want to be alone for sometime and i was so depress by his words and action but not knowing he did it because of another woman. The first time i read an article about Dr.WISE i was wondering if all the things that i read about were true because a lot of people where testifying about his good work, But since i was desperate to get my lover back i had no choice than to contact him And to my greatest surprise i was able to get a positive result that got me shocked because my lover called me within 48hours that i contacted him. thank you Dr.WISE. contact him via email address: or call his mobile number +2347019845256

I love snakes! I've got a ten foot boa constrictor that eats live chickens and rats! Chickens are so damn dumb! I drop a chicken into the snake's cage, and the stupid chicken stands still for a brief period then it starts pecking at little bits on the cage floor. The my beautiful boa, Erki, slowly begins to raise her head, edging closer to the ugly, stupid chicken, the chicken starts to panic, then in a flash my boa snares the chicken while the chicken is squawking and kicking one of its legs. Soon the squawking begins to slowly mute. The ugly chicken's beak is wide open and it's face is turning blue from the strangulation. My boa begins to slowly ingest its tasty chicken dinner. All of this talk makes me want to go to my local KFC's 24 hour drive up and order their five piece original recipe! Yum!

As a teenager I had a dream there was little bearded old man standing at my bedroom door with a snake in a sack. He released the snake and it went under my bed, I was instantly awake from this point and ran to the bathroom where I had to spend the next hour calming myself enough to return to bed. I never had this dream again but remember it vividly.

About a month ago I dreamt of a brown snake inching towards me on the floor of a small room. I felt trapped & scared. 3 days later my husband caught a huge rat snake slithering out of my laundry room!

I had a dream that I was roasting rattle snakes on a fire. What does that symbolize?

My mother have always told me that when somebody dreams of getting bitten by a snake, it means that they are pregnant. The morning I woke up to the snake bite dream, I took a pregnancy test. I was shocked to find out that it came out positive. I gave birth to my first child who is now 4 years old.

I had a dream just last night of being in a situation where I was the owner of a home or renter of a homes with 3 or more bedrooms. I had several people from my past come to stay there with me without being invited. I found myself telling these people to leave, that I didn't want them there living with me. Suddenly I was in I think the bathroom of this house when I huge green snake appeared on my right shoulder & bit my hand or arm, it went numb instantly & then the Snake started wrapping itself around my body, I tried to call out to the people I had just told to leave & wave my other arm to get someone's attention. The snake's face was eye level as I turned to the right. I woke up at that point, can't remember if anyone helped me but was thankful it was only a dream. MEANING?????? e-mail me at

My husband had dream of a snake and we don't know what to think of it. His dream began when he was with one of our sons he does not know wish one. When a women he knew but can not remember told them to put there hand where the snake is, she show them and then my husband did it and nothing happen. Then when our son and the snake bit him. My husband ask him did the snake bit you and he said no but when they look at my sons hand he warms on his had. I did not have the dream but just to hear my husband talk about it, has me worry.
