What Does It Mean When You Dream about Snakes?

Snakes. Some people love them. Others are deathly afraid of them. Almost everyone has dreams of them.

Generally, snakes tend to have a very bad rep – what with them being venomous and all. But does this mean your snake dreams are bad news for you? Let’s explore the possible meanings they might have.

1. You’re dealing with hurtful things someone has said about you

If in your dream, a snake bit you, or chased you, it implies you’re dealing with some very painful things that have been said to you, or about you.It could also be representative of hurtful things you have said of others, as well.

So you need to do a check and see which is it, so you can understand where this dream is coming from. If the former is the case, allow  yourself to feel the hurt, and then move on from it. If it’s the latter, you might want to quit talking smack about others.

2. You’re being warned about being deceived

You know how some people are referred to as snakes? They’re cunning, and usually up to no good.

It’s possible you may have picked up a few cues from someone who is just like this, and your subconscious is trying to warn you by way of a snake dream, telling you not to trust them.

A flip side of this, could be that you are lying to yourself about something, and you need to take a moment and be honest with yourself, even if it hurts.

3. You might be underestimating a threat

Is your dream about a baby snake? Then there’s a chance there’s something you’re overlooking in your life which poses more of a threat to you than you realize. Think about it… it’s a snake, yes, but a baby, so nothing to be worried about, right? Well, it’s no less dangerous than an adult snake.

So take a moment to think about what it is you may not be taking seriously, so you can address it head on before it creates problems for you down the road.

4. You are experiencing a rebirth

If your dream was about a snake shedding its skin, then this means you are becoming a brand new, better version of yourself. It could also mean you should create a fresh start for yourself, if you haven’t already.

In your life, are there opportunities that would mean you have to become someone other than who you’ve been your whole life? Then now would be a great time to take them. Nothing is greater for personal growth, than stepping out of your comfort zone.

5. You are have an abundance of untapped resources

Was your dream just full of snakes everywhere? This kind of snake dream signifies abundance. An abundance of what, exactly?

Snakes are known to represent our deepest passions, and instinctual drives. A dream about so many snakes means you’re full of the drive required for you to make things happen for you, but you need to consciously tap into it, to become the best version of yourself.
