    My sister just transferred to their new home in real life. In my dream, they were showing me how they did one room. To be able to go to the other room, we need to go outside the house. There was a large yellow and black spots snake on the way to the other room. I saw it and i ran from it. It seemed like it ran after me because even how fast i ran it kept its distance. Some friends helped me and they got the snake. So on my way back to the room, i saw another snake like the first one so i ran back out again. As i recall, the snake doesnt seem to be very scary at all. It wasn’t in a fighting stance. It just ran after me. And maybe because in reality i am really afraid of it that is why it is really in mybhorror to see one.

  • Anaïs

    I had a dream with a large bright yellow snake. The inhad tongrab the snake by its throat because it had its mouth ooen to attack me. It was extremely strong for a snake but I handled it and threw it to the ground. In a weird way, I felt like I knew the snake and that it was sent to me intentionally. After I threw it down, it was scared of me and just watched me from a distance. I then was laying down and started having a horrific seizure in the dark. Once it was over, I started screaming horribly and felt like something mean was in the dark with me so I ran out the room and jumped out the window. I had only underwear on but my blanket helped me fly and escape the evil behind me. Horrible dream but I cant figure it out. Please help!

    I had a dream about a large yellow snake with black spots slithering around a man’s neck slowly, not in a threatening manner but what appeared to be a pet, I watched from a short distance in disbelief. Can anyone give me an insight on what this could mean.

  • Allie

  • Prathap reddy

    I am from India , I have a dream of a snake with pure golden body without any spots it’s just glowing. It didn’t attack me or any one , as Indian tradition one sage used to pray for it. At mean while I have taken some pics after some time sage grabbed my phone and he said don’t take photos and gave it back and said delete them but after taking phone I have seen my pics I could find snake pics though I can see sage , my friend, mom and maid. After some time I have seen a idle over that place. But thing is my mom grabbed snake from hole at staring . And snake had there heads.

  • Lisa

    The snake in my dream was a bright colored yellow and white..but huge like an anaconda! It was in the house (not my house in the dream) ,it was very good at hiding..it was an insidious creature..had hate it it’s eyes..never bit anyone,but would stand up,like a cobra,Finally,someone hit it with a few tranquilizer darts to put it down. The night before I had this dream, my boyfriend and I had a big argument and we went to bed without resolving it. This makes sense to me now. Thank you for the dream interpretation.😊

  • Jae

    I had a dream of this huge and extremely bright yellow snake with faint white spots here and there (more like Dalmatian spots than dots). It didn’t hurt me or anything, I actually had it sitting on my lap and feeding it a slice of something, like chicken or whatever, it was strange. Then I looked down and it wasn’t there. I went into my living room and there it was cozying up on a blanket but I was too scared to get near it after that, I went from comfortable to terrified for some reason.

  • America

  • Maria Ferrer

    A few weeks I had a dream of a yellow with white spots snake eating a big frog. The snake was eating the frog with back legs first. I woke up shaking from that dream.

  • Ms Castillo

    I dreamt there was a yellow & white snake in the flood waters we just had here in TX (Hurricane Harvey). The snake snuck up on me in a garage and when I turned around to see what was there, he would try and hide himself. As soon as I turned to walk away from it, it would follow me. I turned back twice and both times he tried to hide almost like he was fooling with me knowing darn well I’m scared of snakes. It didn’t attack, it just followed me & hid from me. Weird.

  • Letty

    I had a dream of a yellow pale white snake, but I was in the middle of the woods. It look like it took place centuries ago,when men wore animal skins for the cold seasons. So there I was and like 5 children were using sticks to play fight with the snake, so I was on the side of the snake protecting it from the kids. I used my wooden stick to tap them on their legs every time they would strike at it. The snake of coarse should snap and try to bite them in defense. Then after they stopped playing with the snake they decided to play with needles where at the end of the needle it had a white pearl. One kid accidentally swallows the needle and started vomiting trying to cough it out. It was so terrifying to see that because I just stood there in shock and didn’t help him. Any idea what it means?

  • Juju

    Hi i dream that my friends and i was stuck somewhere and one of my friend open a basket,he pull out a big yellow snake,the snake looked at him in his face and he screamed the snake entered his month.i was so scared i jump out of the dream

  • Cat

    I love snakes and do not fear them. In my dream, I had a huge yellow boa constrictor as a pet and I was gently moving it onto a perch that I had hanging from the ceiling because I thought it would love it up there. It wrapped around the bars and it lounged on the perch happily. I had to remove my beloved kitty from it so that the snake could be there. My kitty then climbed up to get back on (she’s obstinate) and was up face-to-face with the snake. At that point, I became worried because I didn’t know if the snake would try to eat my cat, so I again, removed her from the perch. Later in the dream, my roommate (who in real life, is my neighbor) removed the snake and put a plant back up, which infuriated me. I went out to the patio to see he had mucked that all up too (he’s somewhat of a hoarder and I’m the opposite) and he had moved other things of mine. At that point I realized that I do not actually live with my neighbor and woke up.

  • Vicki

    In my dream a older woman brought a box with 3 snakes in it to my house … A red one..a green one..and a yellow one.  The yellow snake fought to get out of the box.  But the green and red snake just rolled around in the box. They seemed happy there.  The yellow snake was real mad and when it got out it ran at me and started to bit me like crazy. They funny thing about this was i was never afraid. I just woke up thinking why the yellow one….

    I dreamt bout a long tiny yellow snake that at first was supposed to be a bird larva (?) as the dream tells later on the larva was living on the ceiling of the house and it was making bird noises.I tried finding what was it and for a moment the larva was speaking that if I try to kill it it would be a mistake so I tried and with every try it became longer and had shaped itself like a snake.The last thing I remember was my mom tellin me it was a digital snake(?) and let it bite her

  • Tania

    I am the type of person I LOVE snakes with all my heart, but this was just terrifying!
    I was lying, somewhere in the woods(?) I was, well, basically paralized and there was this huge yellow python next to me.. For some reason I had a- kind of plastic wrap with me? The snake was getting closer to me and I somehow managed to hold the plastic wrap against its face. It felt like I was able to hold it back but it kept coming closer and closer.. Obviously, I woke up seconds before the snake was basically right in front of my face.

    I dreamt of a big bright yellow snake last night. My husband and i and one of our children were riding on a bus, when it was time to alight, the bus driver wouldnt open the bus door. He shouted there was a big snake near the entrance. There was already someone dealing with the snake. He was trying catch it.
    So that man was struggling with the snake and all of a sudden the snake was moving towards our bus and attacked and flew towards our window, hissing some liquid. We were all unhurt.
    Halfway through a motocyclist rode by…seeing the snake, he got frightened and got off his bike. To our surprise he fought the snake, strangling it and the snake died.

    • Scared for my baby

      I saw similar dream as yours. I have a 9 month old baby boy. In my dream, I saw long, big yellow snake with brown patches on it. Someone(don’t remember who or some unknown person) was trying to get rid of the snake, then the snake coiled up itself while the person was holding it’s tail and in the air, the person got afraid and threw the snake. I was holding my baby, the person threw the snake towards us (he didn’t mean to) and it bit my boy on his thigh. I woke up really scared after this.

      And I’m still scared. Not your what it means. Did you figure out what yours meant?

      In your waking life, your husband might have a tendency to take the lead too often or be the decision-maker. This might have made you doubt and neglect to listen to your own intuition. Perhaps you both disagree on a matter related to your child and you fear that your own intuition and thoughts about what’s right for the child will not be heard. Finally, the part about being trapped with the yellow snake, which represents your intuition and intellect, may be the fear of finding yourself alone and faced with the part of you you have neglected to listen to and express. This could lead to regret, and self-resentment.
