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 had a dream that a non venomous cobra bit my brother on his low back leaving 4 puncture wounds. The snake then crawled up my leg inside my pants up to my rear and bit me behind my testicles I wanted him removed and saw family members trying to remove him. Next he was in my back pocket facing and attacking my family as they tried removing him. I then grabbed him just behind his head and squeezed him as hard as I could and fell my thumb push through his neck killing him. I knew he wasn’t poisonous but was terrified of him biting me and I wanted him off me and out of my back pocket.

    i have had this dream two times now.

    i dreamed that i was climbing out of the window into this hard, dirty, dusty ground and it also had a muddy water area as well. there wasn’t much water but there was a lot of black and brown small snakes around. i wasn’t harmed but i was calm and it was like i was friends with them. i then saw a huge anaconda body moving around but i couldn’t see its head. i was freaking out trying to find it and then all the small snakes started to come after me. i went from being fine to being scared. when i was trying to climb back up the windows they all followed and tried to force themselves in. i got in and it was like they were all waiting until i opened the window so they could come in. the snakes finally went back down and thats the end.

    can anyone tell me the meaning behind this dream.

    • Lynn

      I normally don’t ever feel inclined to interpret a dream, but this to me seems like there is something that you are either hiding inside or haven’t acknowledged yet that is threatening your relationships with your friends. Maybe take a while to self check and explore your inner self to figure this one out.

    2 snakes , black and white, extremely big . Both seemed to have a face off with each other the black snake slipping away, with the white snake stand tall ✨

    • Chitaria

      I’m no where near a dream intreprter BUT I felt like this dream spoke to me. The black and the white snake facing off to me meant the good in the bad of the ying and yang sign. With the white snake standing tall, whatever has been bothering you was won overall in good standing, or on a good note.

    I was walking through a field. I vaguely remember a pond being near by ,but I paid no interest to it. Suddenly, there was a small black snake crawling beside my ankle. I didn’t feel afraid or threatened I just watched it emotionlessly. I decided to follow it ;however, as I did that a small brown snake emerged as well. They slithered across each other. As that happened, I still followed them. After awhile, a small pale snake came as well. Together all three of them slithered across from each other. Then they merged together. You could still see their individual colors and they seemed to spin in a clockwise pattern. However,they stopped, formed a circle ,and started eating each other like their life depended on it. I remember my heart racing and feeling nothing but tread. I awoke with my heart racing and me being covered in sweat. It’s been bothering me for quite some time.

    In an early morning dream recently i saw a dull black tube like snake at home which suddenly started to ride on my left arm and shoulder from the back. I shouted but it did not go and bit the lower part of my left ear many times. My mother was seeing all this but she did not do anything. After this the snake got converted into a well known actress and said to me that this is for your benefit. I am not at all connected to the media. Was tense when I got up

    • A. Edwards

      I think your mom has heen warning you about something or someone and you refuse to listen to her. The biting many times indicate that you must listen and take heed and you will be victorious over the situation. If not you will suffer great loss.  Listen to your mom and you will succeed

We shouted, as soon as my brother tried to run snake blocked his way and when he jumped on bed to save himself the snake followed him too, but somehow my brother escaped. The snake hid somewhere in the floor gap. My brother was all traumatized and my aunt was chanting prayers to calm him down
