    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.

    I had a dream last night that my cousin and I were outside my house on a porch swing. When I looked down by the tree by our feet there were a pile of black little garden snakes. I look up and a white and yellow one was slithering up my leg. I couldn’t stop it. It snapped onto the. Back of my head. We ran inside because I started feeling dizzy and nauseous, not know what all the snakes venom could do. We got scared because we didn’t know how I’d breast feed my son. So we talked to my fiancé and his fiancé and my mom. Then I looked outside and all these yellow and white snakes were trying to get in. Then I woke up.

  • Amy

    I had a dream I was a little girl and when visiting relatives was attacked by 7 yellow (bright) snakes.  I became feverish but didn’t want to tell anyone because I was embarrassed. My ‘older self’ who was taking care of my ‘younger self’ noticed something was wrong, but the doctors shrugged their shoulders and were not helpful. My father in my dream (who passed away years ago) was the only one to take me seriously and said the girl ‘younger me’ was very sick and I needed to get her help.  Otherwise she would get very sick and could die.

    In my dream I was in the bathroom and somehow the bathroom decor had a jungle theme. As I was walking out the bathroom, I saw python, bright yellow with 2 shades darker patches) slithering down by the door. The python looked at me and I was scared but made a quick move to the door. I told my spouse about it and he went back in the bathroom. I went back in the bathroom and saw him killing the snack with a pair of scissors, of all things. When I came back in, the snake was smaller.

    I was dragging a few snakes by the tails and had a yellow snake follow me. I wasn’t afraid of them, I was talking to them in the dreams and they helped me. I’ve dreamt of talking snakes for a while. The psyche during a dream state is very bizarre.  I’ve been looking for an interpretation but haven’t found it.

    My dream started with I saw a giant snake being tied up to a pillar, there are other people trying to cut the robe to release it but couldn’t so I tried to cut the rope and succeeded. I tried to avoid looking to the snake’s eyes but ended up still caught it. I then kept on trying to hide from it but it kept trying to find me by my smell. While I hiding, I can see that giant yellow snake crushing through house as it’s moving…I imagined that it would eat me regardless of me being its benefactor, that’s why I wanted to run…super weird dreamt, I never dreamt like that before, the snake, more like a python, was super big, giant with a head as big as a rangerover…help me understand my dream!

  • Snake dreamer

    I just woke up from a pretty terrifying dream. I dreamt a lot tonight but I can only remember what was at the end. Me and my mom were in my grandma’s house for some reason and I was walking upstairs, looked outside and saw a giant snake. It was yellow, I don’t remember exactly how it looked. I THINK it had even brighter yellow stripes, perhaps some black spread out on its body but I’m more sure about different shades of yellow than the black.
    Me and my mom were in the kitchen, which is to the right of the door. I had told her about the snake and she said that she would deal with it. Then I look up from my spot at the corner and other end of the room and see that the door to the outside is open and the snake is coming inside. I discretely tell my mom and she just freezes and tell me not to move. I try to stay still as the giant snake passes my mom and comes up to me but I panic and almost even kick it right in the face, I just can’t sit still.
    I believe I made the snake angry, I woke up shaking in that moment and I think that if the dream would’ve continued, I would’ve been killed by the snake.

    It was enormous, really long too. It’s head was like the size of a car tire almost. Please help me understand this dream.

    I dreamed of greenish blue snakes with a yellow stripe coming out of my mouth. They were baby snakes. Every time I would pull one out another would come. It was crazy because I saw them dropping from a vent and then all of a sudden I would be pulling one of my mouth. This is one of the strangest dreams I’ve ever had. Can some help me figure this out?

  • Old Ranger

    1990 I dreamed of a yellow snake with a head the size of a fist about 3ft in length, and I held that snake in my arm with no fear. 6 days later my lottery ticket came out first prize $6.5M after tax. After helping out family members and their kids’ college, I still left with about $2M. Years later today my own family live in a beautiful mansion in Europe and I own over 50 classic cars in my own home workshop, and a private jet ….

    Last night I have the same dream, but wish someone will have that fortune. Good luck!

    And remember to help out on others around you…..

      I dream a yellow white python and I don’t know what it’s means. Since I was a kid I keep on dreaming of snakes.

      • Old Ranger

        Usually white or bright colors imply purity, righteousness, sunshine, happiness, cleanliness, lively, fortune, calmness, serenity etc the good stuff, and pythons usually are non-poisonous but can be powerful full of strength. In jungle training, pythons blood can quench your thirst and meat to feed the starving soldiers, so your dream might imply there will be someone powerful who will help you along the way and may sacrifice for you….only guessing.

        Black usually imply dead, laziness, downward spiral, plague, sickness, chaos, disease, bad luck, noisy etc the bad stuff, just like we see in real world, not being radical, but just the truth for many thousand years.
