Dream Meaning #1: Be aware of your emotions before they sweep you up

A dream about a snake in water symbolizes the connection with your emotions. Typically, the snake comes as a warning sign or a wake up call about a situation that is potentially threatening and associated with strong feelings.

If the snake swims peaceful in calm waters, it means that you’re dealing with your emotions positively and with ease. If you dream about a snake that bites you while you’re swimming, it could be interpreted as a warning to pay attention to your emotions before they strike and go out of control.

Consider the type of water you or the snake swims in in your dream, your reactions towards the snake, and the behavior of the animal to interpret what emotional mood is influencing your life right now.

Dream Meaning #2: Snakes in water as symbols of emotional healing

If you are comfortable in the water and the snake’s behavior is friendly or neutral, it means that you are at peace with your emotions. The presence of the snake could indicate that you are healing emotional wounds or dealing with a situation that’s potentially challenging with ease. The dream may also reflects your desire or hope to clear some worries with regards to a close relationship or a situation that touches you deeply.

Even if you’re dreaming of swimming with snakes and are afraid of them in the dream, you may be facing difficult emotions in your life, but are going with the flow and trying to deal with them. If you are struggling in the water or with the snake, it indicates that you are resisting feelings or a change in your waking life.

    I dreamt of swimming down a river, just going with the flow with a large friendly snake (it was a friend or pet in the dream), meanwhile dozens of other snakes were entering the the water and swimming down stream with us. There was no fear. All of the snakes were placid. At one point there was also a child in the water who I was reassuring.

    First, the green normal sized snake was in my house on the floor. I saw it and it went out the window. Then I saw it in swampy water and it was huge…as big as I am. The person I was with had a stick and was bring the snake to the surface so he could show it to me. The snake was not happy…wanted to be left alone.

    I saw in my dream 2 snakes in a river. One went into a hole by the river and the other disappeared in the river. Just after that a python came out of the river and started coiling to the nearby palm tree. The python became half human, half python. Non of the snakes hurt or attack me.

  • Laura

    I dreamt of 3 anacondas in murky water …and in my dream even being on the side of the river or lake I knew one was going to jump out of the water to attack me so I was prepared. Before going into the water I knew to stay calm and hold my breath because I knew I would need to fight it off… I for some reason think to rip into its eyes like a shark and it lets me go. Please help me interpret this dream

  • Geena

    Dreamt a massive anaconda was swimming through a river and it crushed a boat with people on it, i was watching through a window high up this is all I remember but I can see it so clearly I just wanted to know what it meant. I didn’t feel any fear of the snake either.

  • Kallie

    I’ve had the same dream 2 nights in a row. The first night consisted of my family and I being in a pool enjoying our time. As we’re getting out we see a HUGE black and orange snake curled up in the corner of the pool. After I woke up I didn’t feel any emotion towards it. The second night, we were all aware of the snake from the beginning and stayed on the opposite side of the pool, but never got out. After we were done swimming, I reached in, grabbed it by the head, crushed it, and threw it over the fence. I woke up and still feel nothing.
