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.

    I was dreaming that me and my family was cleaning the house and all day I knew there was a snake around because I had seen one earlie in the garden so then I realized the snake hissing wasn't getting louder and louder I looked around it had popped from some hole and now was in the house idk how I have a wild imagination but the Snake was on the skate rolling around the house I couldn't catch it but my younger brother was like I can kill it and took it off the skateboard but now I had to put it back because it was safer there I left so then I put it back and my mom finally came around as I kept ahold of the snake and we didn't get to the killing and I said I don't wanna kill it's too cute ! And then I couldn't even see if it died because somehow the scene changed and my uncle was there saying that u know we always wanted a snake and catched a bigger one before and then I felt I was sleeping in and I had to get to work so does this mean I'm getting closer with my family relationship or discovering my new relationship with a lover or is it something else ? Anyone help ? I'm still confused

    About 3 yrs ago I saw this dream - In dream we were living in that old 1 room flat on 1st floor where we use to really live during my childhood and I feel my self as a 5 yrs old child. I had hold a sea-green snake in my bare right hand, I guess I caught it inside of our home. I wanted it to hostage it.. but don't find any thing. I decided to go out of home to get something; in lobby towards stairs, I noticed I had wear only one sleeper on my left feet so rushed back to room to wear second sleeper meanwhile that snake slipped and fell-down from my hand as it was already trying to get free and ran away, it ran towards stairs, in stairs there were a boy I shouted him to hold that snake and when came back wearing second sleeper in a couple of second that boy told me the snake ran away towards park at the back side of our flat I rush to hold it but that was very fast I saw him getting into bushes and lost it. Then I got awake. I clearly feel that time that this was a hint for me and my wife that we will get separated.

    I dreamed of a fat, largely round, light-green python having a peaceful demeanor, but I was afraid. I asked my husband to kill it. He cut into it with a shovel. I looked away. He then served square pieces of its flesh as a sandwich to me. He seemed happy to do so. I still feel yuck. I have now been searching online for the meaning of such a terrible dream.

    I had a dream about a Great flood wiping out everything on earth. I was with my family and love ones but I knew that it's the end of the world and there is a big chance of not surviving the flood. We climbed up to higher ground or Some kind of a tree. I remembered myself waking up surrounded by snakes trying to bite me but there is one green snake trying to bite my toes. It was trying to reach me as I am stepping back. After that I woke up.

    • Anonymous
      I had a similar thing in my dream. Although I knew the snake was deadly I remained calm and it stayed coiled on my arm until it decided to slither off. The snake was a medium to light color green and was thin and long.

    I dreamed of a green snake...However initially when I first saw the snake in my dream he was a normal color brown snake. It was in a neglected area of the yard...not my house...but a family member's...However in the dream it seems like I live there. At the time when I first saw the snake it looked like it was just there but also looked like my nephew of 3 was in danger. I tried to call out to him but he didn't hear...next minute I am holding my nephew in my arms and the snake is a shocking green color...he looked aggressive and then bit my nephew om his finger...In an attempt to protect my nephew he bit me on my hand but he looked very aggressive like he wanted to attack me again...when he was green he looked alot more aggressive than when he was brown. After biting us he disappeared. I would like to know what it means.
  • Brenda
    I was dreaming green snakes a lot of them all different tones. Some were darker with a more triangle shape head. Those seemed to be a tad bit more aggressive than the others. They wouldn't attack unless I reached out for them. Some were falling off the ceiling and others crawled out of different directions all heading towards one location. The person I was with in my dream (I couldn't see that person clearly) would grab a few and place them under this green color couch. The snakes would crawl into the green couch. Not all the snakes would be aggressive when picking them up how any snake handler would (from behind the head, to avoid getting bit).
  • Maria Canete
    I have a dream last night about the colorful fast snake, he not chase me but I'm the one who try to chase him to kill it, because I thought he will going to bite me. What is the meaning? And I was surprise the color of the snake that I'm dreaming is a tiny snake but there is blue color, red color, yellow green color. And after that I try to chase him and it's gone, i don't know where he go because he is too fast.
  • Annoymous726Taurus

  • Ann
    My dream was about me getting a pet snack that grew very quickly. It was a male snake (more symbolism?) who was a beautiful shade of green. He was venomous, but only bit to protect himself or me. He would only inject venom if the person he was biting was very dangerous. (I never saw that part in the dream, but I knew that about him.) He’d give me small nips with no venom as a way to show his affection. He was very attached to me because I was there when he hatched. He followed me around constantly. When I told him to stay, he would, then start following me again when I turned my back to him. Others were afraid of him because he was so large. They came to like him IF they took time to get to know him.

    I dreamed of a long bright green snake coming toward me as to attack me but just as it got close enough i grabbed the snake by the neck and bite its head off. I could taste i guess it was poisoning in my mouth. I awoke with a scream.
  • Jade
    I dreamed that my older brother bought a big dark green snake as a pet. The snake was huge though, like a serpent. It was slimy as well. But, it was a friendly snake and the snake's mouth looked like it was closed by its own slime or something. I guess it was so that the snake couldn't bite. My family all pat the snake because we were excited to pet the snake. But I can't help in my dream that I felt like I was being watched over and as if the big dark green snake had something up its sleeves. I would like to know more about this dream that I had. I am wondering if this dream is a connection to something. Please
  • Amy martin
    In my dream..i was sitting amongst a small group of people when a dark green anaconda type snake was sliding towards a hole in the ground in front of me,when it suddenly noticed me and started to come after me. Not in a resl agressive way just following me and i was really scared and ran inside and shut a screen door to protect myself. Someone from the group then picked up the snake and took it away. I then rejoined the group and said 'sorry,snake scare me!' What does this mean? Thanks for any reply

    I dreamt I was a t a large log cabin lodge. There were lots of other people there. There was a gasp and shout "SNAKE".. At first there was a shadow of a smaller snake co I got out of a large art ornament high on a wall above a speakers head. I even thought the art piece was the doctors medical image of a snake wrapped around a shaft. The snake rocked back and forth fron the shaft growing bigger and becoming a deep green. Like a healthy plant color. People did not seem scared. It became gigantic. I said I had to get my family out because it could eat us... Then a peaceful man approached my friend ( she's much younger than I ) and Said you must be the one (meaning the one afraid of the snake). I tried to leave but leivatated a couple of feet and couldn't move my legs. I was pushed against a chair with an elder lady and was concerned that she was ok. Than I dropped to the floor. I knew the man and snake were one of the same and they wanted me,Though they were not aggressive. I was afraid and was trying to leave. What does this mean???
  • erica Barnes
    In my dream I was feeding my dog and I heard a slithering noise. In her bowl was a lime green snake, very bright. It was small and it moved slowly. I was scared as hell. Suddenly my cousins dog picked up the snake (as If she was a human) and followed me with it. Another weird fact was she stood on her hind legs (as if she was a human) It was fucking weird. Then I walked to the door where my cousins dog let the snake out and I woke up...been researching every since.

    In my dream I opened the bathroom door and there were two green snakes hissing badly and I screamed and two black things I couldn't remember and I felt a man he Looked like JESUS?? I DONT UNDERSTAND
    • Anonymous
      That wasnt jesus
      • Ann
        Just curious. Why do you think the man in her dream wasn't Jesus?
    • Ann
      I was in therapy for recovery from family of origin issues. A few participants had dreams of snakes. My therapist said that snakes represent wisdom. I think one reason we react with fear is because we're afraid of snakes when we're awake. I suggest you meditate about the green snakes and try to find out 1) why they were hissing and 2) if they have a message to bring to you. Finally, the man very well could have been Jesus. He has come to me many times in my meditations as my protector and to bring me wisdom and understanding. Again, try to get in touch again with him. He may have a gift to give you.

    I had a dream where I was in my house with my friend, and in the dream we were a couple, even though I know we won't be...Anyway, I saw a lime green snake with a red diamond on its forehead and eyes changing from red and black from time to time. It came closer and it bit my thigh. I screamed, though the pain didn't feel as bad. It started to burn and I saw my 'boyfriend' staring in complete schock and my dad running around to get something. I didn't hit it because I didn't want it to harm me anymore. Then I woke up and my thigh felt all tingly and limp

    my dream is of a green and brown boa, where, in this dream, sleeps with me, and I awake to see it running away and hiding. I am concerned for my wife and dog being harmed. I jump up, turn on the light and search for it under the couch, then slowly wake up and finally realize it is a dream. Any ideas on this? I am a bit mystified.

    Few days back I had a dream of a snake which was a mix of green and some other dark color (which i dont remember) with its fangs spread with very bright eyes looking at me; and just looking and not doing anything. I got scared but really did not run away. I just moved from where I was .... and then I woke up. Does this mean that something bad will happen or something good? Is this kind of a warning Appreciate a response.
  • Melanie
    I had a dream that a huge lime green sneak was coiling around me. I wasn't too scared almost like I was in a trance, but then a blond guy pulled it off of me. Later in the dream I was grateful to him for saving me. I'm not sure if he killed it or just saved me from it. But I was just curious what it means. Any one have thoughts? I rarely dream and this was so vivid.

    Today I dreamed that I was in the grassland, and under the earth, I could see a giant green snake that was just in a peaceful sleep. I was watching it, I wasn't afraid, I was actually thrilled and relaxed to see it in a state of calm bliss. A few months ago, I also dreamed of snakes, I first saw 3 black snakes, small, medium, and large. In my dream, I grabbed the small one and said "you are not the right one" and proceeded to smash its head with a rock, then I saw the middle sized, and said the same thing. Then, I grabbed a medium sized rock and threw it at its head until it died. Then, the I saw the large one, I grabbed a larger rock to throw at the creature but it quickly escaped into a sewer. When I tried to follow it, I was instantly in the dessert. The desert had a cave in which I quickly entered, as if looking for someone or something. Then, my attention was focused on the sand on the corner of the well lit cave. The sand started to move, and there it revealed it self a majestic white king cobra, a poisonous giant creature facing me. I wasn't afraid, I was watching it like it was watching me. Finally, I heard myself utter the word, "I finally found you".

    Had a dream I was in my room with my girlfriend (who does not like snakes one bit) and we just got this new pet grass snake. I was weirded out but interested and let him move around in the room. It hissed at me with the top of its head spit in half. I have no idea why my dreams can really crazy sometimes. But it was chill after that and let him be for a bit. Then it let me pet him and I felt better about him/her. My girlfriend picked it up and threw it behind my bed and I said "Aww, get along with our new pet" and laughed. I think the snakes represents my emotions. I do need to be a lil more compassionate and nicer to situations. I need to work on my attitude and good things are coming. Good things are coming (Grandmas boy) lol
