Dream Meaning #1: Green snakes as symbols for personal growth

Because the color of the snake is green, the dream suggests that a transformation is occurring in your life quite organically, naturally, just like when plants grow on their own. Perhaps you are discovering new aspects of yourself or nurturing a relationship or project. To dream of a green snake indicates that you’re undergoing personal growth and inner transformation.

Depending on the shade of the colored snake, you can find additional meanings regarding the quality and characteristics of your personal development.

Dream Meaning #2: Connecting with your true self

Green snakes are strongly associated with nature and the earth. What in you is moved by the presence of this snake in your dream? How does the creature or the dream relate to an earthy, natural part of you that is in the process of emerging?

As green symbolizes what’s natural, earthy, a dream about a green snake may mean that you are reconnecting with more grounded qualities in yourself. At least, it’s a call to pay more attention to what helps you ground and find enough energy to support you in living and expressing what’s true to you and in you.

Dreaming Meaning #3: Symbolic representation of new beginnings and positive change

The color green may point to some aspects of yourself or a project in your life that is not “ripe” yet; in other words, you are dealing with just the beginnings. Green on a snake is about the come back of the energy of positive change in your life. Depending on how the snake behaves in your dream, it could reflect how you are embracing or coping with the change: Are you experiencing it as aggression, threat, death of old patterns? Or are you at peace with this evolution?

Green Snake Dream

The green snake in your dream is then likely a call to take care of an opportunity for growth that you may otherwise be missing. It could indicate the need to nurture a bit more something that is just starting to emerge in your life, whether it’s new habits, a relationship or personal project.

Dream Meaning #4: Shades of green snakes and their meanings

The shade of the colored snake will tell more about the meanings conveyed in the dream. Darker greens generally have negative connotations associated with jealousy, perhaps deceit. Lighter shades of green express opening up to healing, opportunity for growth. A balanced, healthy green suggests strength in your personal growth, steadiness and determination. It could also be a symbol for serenity, calm.

Even though green is archetypally associated with nature, healing, and growth, your interpretation will benefit from looking within yourself to find out what green means to you personally. In addition, consider the behavior of the snake in the dream. It may give clues about how you are experiencing some changes that are occurring in your daily life.

    In my dream a green cobra snake appears to be hanging over my head as I’m walking carrying my sleeping infant niece on my neck. The next thing I’m in my room and the cobra jumps off my head to the corner of the room and disappears. Any interpreter who can help clarify this to me. Thanks.

But when I see the wood on the roof of the house I see a lot of green snake.

And I’m wake up it’s almost 8am in the morning.

    I had a dream that I was climbing a tree. Once at the top, I noticed there were many green vipers with hints of blue. I became concerned for my well-being, and decided to climb down quickly. While climbing down, by foot got caught and I found me self dangling from the tree by by foot. I felt a snake on my back, so I tried to plan how I would get out of the situation. The snake then slithered up my arm and bit me on my right hand. My a started tingling and I grabbed the snakes head and tried to kill it. Then it bit me on my left hand and I woke up.

    I had the following dream last night,and its been bugging me the whole day.

    I dreamed that there is a swallow nest in the shape of a small wooden house.This nest was connected to a basket on the other end.It was like a pendulam scale,if weight is added on the one side(the wooden house) the other basket lifts up,if weight is removed from the wooden house (in this case when some of the swallows fly away) the other end lowers.

    This is the background of the dream.

    Now what happened was,I founded a little bird that was injured,I picked it up and did not want to set it free,I then walked to the place where the bird house was,and as I approached the swallows flew away and the house part raised and the basket end lowered. I then put the injured basket just to see that there was a green snake in the basket,I only saw the snake as I put the bird in the basket and then backed off as I am afraid of snakes.

    The swallows came back into the house and the basket end raised and I was not able to reach the basket to save the injured bird.

    The thing is, the snake did not eat the bird as it looked like it already had eaten something as its head part was still big,giving me the idea it is busy digesting something.

    What does this mean??

    Last night, I had a dream that I was hanging out with a group of my friends downtown. I was renting an apartment over an Indian restaurant that had a trap door from my room to the middle of the restaurant. In real life I have a phobia of snakes, but in my dream I was completely calm. The snake that I had wrapped around my arm looked like a little green garden snake. It only attempted to bite me once but it was being aggravated by a person new to my group of friends. Rest of the time, the snake was calm and even loving.

    Can someone please help me to understand this?

    Hi, I dreamed of three small green and black or brown snakes, I was going to the bathroom in our bedroom when I found them just rolled there as they normally do, I that it was only one because of how it was rolled. I went back slowly to tell my husband that I saw I snake then he took a stick and removed and he was sitting next to the window and I thought he is going to throw them out the window but no, he only threw them under the dressing table and I ran and one came after me. But did not hurt me then I woke up stressed.

    I was noticing lizards all over a toilet that was near an atrium. When I looked closely I realized my face was very close to a green snake camouflaged by the plants in the atrium and poised to strike. I slowly moved away. My dog came up to it and the snake relaxed and rubbed its face on the dog’s fur in a friendly way! I was no longer afraid only fascinated.

  • shayne

    It was me, but not me as I am now. I was in a different body but the same consciousness. I looked down to find my feet bare (normal occurance in my dreams) and I noticed a snake with a cobra head and bright green patterns all over it. It was crawling around my floor and between my legs as giggled. So I knelt down on the floor and it crawled up my forearm. For a second I was afraid it was going to bite me but decided not to show fear and it continued to slither all around my foreaem and between my feet. Then I woke with the vibrancy of the green on the snake still in my mind

  • Skylar

    I was in a mall and everywhere I looked a green snake would pop up. It would either be green on top with a white stomach or a green and brown spotted snake. I would look through the racks and a snake would be either on the rack it self or on the clothing. I have a habit of pulling sleep out of my dogs eyes and in the dream I did that but instead of sleep it was a double headed snake, it looked dead but I wasn’t positive. ( it was the green and white.) Then I would run away because I’m terrified of snakes and another snake would chase me or it felt like it did. ( the brown and green spotted snake) I’ve dreamt of a dream similar like this before. It terrifies me and on top of it I was alone in the dream.

  • Declan Dakin-Weston

    I dreamt of a Masai’s I’ve pyphon-like very bright illuminous green snake that was winding around pipes in a basement in a house. I caught it using a snake catching thing and found myself outside emptying a cool box and putting it inside. It started hissing. Then I noticed the lid was broke and crapped myself. All of a sudden my little dog Casper ( a half Yorkie, half West Island terrier) appeared though the broken part of the box. The box was still hissing and a quickly lifted the lid slightly and pulled him out. The box was still hissing so I covered it and woke up

  • Maria Bello

    I dreamed of a bunch of small, skinny, bright green snakes roaming around my house. A few of the snakes got really big at the same time that people were “disappearing” as if they were being swallowed by the small snakes. I wasnt afraid or skeeved, and the snakes were not attacking anyone. Even thought im highly scared of snakes, it was a very peaceful dream.
