Dream Meaning #1: Black snakes represent emotional darkness

Dreaming of that animal dressed in black denotes the quality of your mood in your waking life. The appearance of a black snake suggests that you are experiencing deep changes in your life and are involved, consciously or not, in a grieving process as you are leaving the past or old ideas behind. These changes may come with feelings of sadness, loss, depression.

Dream Meaning #2: Transformation and important life changes

Black snakes in dreams are associated with  the power of deep transformations that rise up from the unconscious as symbolized by the darkness. This animal may indicate that you are facing a lot of unknowns in your life, whether it’s in a new relationship or taking on new responsibilities at work.

Dreaming of a dark snake is likely a call to grow, transform, as you move from the unconscious and unknown to more awareness about yourself and what matters in your life.

Dreaming Meaning #3: Symbolic representation of the unconscious

This black animal can also be a symbol of rejected aspects of the personality of the dreamer. The dream points to a dimension of yourself that has been avoided and need to be exposed and dealt with.

The black snake suggests that you are dealing with unconscious drives and hidden desires that are disguised as temptations. Dreaming of a black snake is then a call to discover what is driving you and get in touch with deep longings that you may have ignored until now.

Dream Meaning #4: Black snakes as representation of threat

If a black snake shows up in your dream, you may be facing a situation in your daily life that is perceived as a threat. It may be very challenging and you’re avoiding it. The presence of the black snake points to the fact that you may be unaware of a threatening situation.

    I dreamed I was getting out of bed and I thought I stepped on a stick but it was a black snake. I was holding someone in my lap and I could not get up fast enough. The snake withered away from me.

    19 Jan 2017 – Snake Dream early house dozing between bronchial coughing fits between 4.30am and 7.30 am.  The sound of my own wheezing may have triggered the snake dream imagery.

    I dreamt a huge snake cream under belly, dark slate grey up side (matt not shiny), worked it’s way in through living room window, moving snake like weaving back and forth.  (searching for something maybe) It was underside facing me. (soft vulnerable underbelly- tender maybe) it went straight up into ceiling through a small hole in corner, (the snake circumfrance was much bigger than the hole, you would think a snake of this size would not normally fit into) I felt shock horror at the size of it and that I would have to some how arrange to have it taken away. 

    The small hole in the ceiling is above left of where pc sits, the whole not in reality but in the dream

    where that snake weaved its way across and up the wall it left marks on the paintwork which resembled artwork (swirling abstract). Black, white with some yellow.

    I had a dream of a black snake (small one) with white scars here and there. It was evening time and I was swinging in a swing outside my home. Suddenly this black snake came towards me and started to gaze at me. I spoke to it and it felt very cuddled. Then people came up with sticks to hit it. I said the snake to go away and I would come later. I wanted an interpretation for this dream as i felt that the dream was telling me something about my life.

    I approached Dinesh Audichya. He was quick enough to give me the interpretation about my dream. I recommend other visitors of the blog to take his help for interpretations of their dreams. E-mail:

    I had a dream where I went over to my partner’s house with my grandmother and my partner’s mother, when my partner went to close the door I could see there was a big black snake behind him, he saw it too. Then after that we ran into the living room where the was a big piathon coming out from behind the tv cabinet I started to scream and couldn’t find my partner, it felt like I was the only one there. I ran out of the living room and in to my partner’s bed room, At first I didn’t see any snakes so I thought it was safe, I ran to the back of the room and turned around and right there infront of me was a big black snake, but the snake was different than normal black snakes. It had red eyes with black slits and like a cobra, was standing up but it didn’t have that thing that cobras have on the sides of they’re body’s . The snake was fully black no white or red stomach just dark almost shadowy black. The snake started to come towards me and I screamed and begged for my partner to come save me, but then I got this feeling that my partner was watching me just not helping me,even though I couldn’t see him. It felt as if my partner was just standing there right infront of me smirking at me, watching me beg. Then the way the dream was veiwed, it went to my point of view and the snake went straight for me. Now my partner is not a bad person, he would never hurt me, he is an amazing person. What’s werid is I haven’t had a nightmare in a very long time and the nightmare happened straight after I received a pentagram necklace.

    Had a dream where two black snakes were moving out of my house and one yellow snake was troubling to stay in, and it remained in the house. But the weird part was that, the yellow snake was able to fly! Can someone help me interpret the dream?

    I dreamt last night of black snakes. A big one and several small ones were slithering to my direction. Two of the small ones got into a white basin that I was holding. The black snakes tried to bite my right arm. But before they did, I was able to grabbed their slippery heads. They looked straight into my eyes with an angry look. The fangs and the piercing eyes terrified me and woke up feeling very disturbed.

    I was sleeping and I heard a hissing sound.  When I opened my eyes a black snake was coming toward me with its mouth open.  I jumped out of bed and there wasn’t any indication of the snakes presence.  I didn’t see it slither off of the bed, it just disappeared.  I was FULLY AWAKE!  Can someone tell me what this means?
