Dream Meaning #1: Black snakes represent emotional darkness

Dreaming of that animal dressed in black denotes the quality of your mood in your waking life. The appearance of a black snake suggests that you are experiencing deep changes in your life and are involved, consciously or not, in a grieving process as you are leaving the past or old ideas behind. These changes may come with feelings of sadness, loss, depression.

Dream Meaning #2: Transformation and important life changes

Black snakes in dreams are associated with  the power of deep transformations that rise up from the unconscious as symbolized by the darkness. This animal may indicate that you are facing a lot of unknowns in your life, whether it’s in a new relationship or taking on new responsibilities at work.

Dreaming of a dark snake is likely a call to grow, transform, as you move from the unconscious and unknown to more awareness about yourself and what matters in your life.

Dreaming Meaning #3: Symbolic representation of the unconscious

This black animal can also be a symbol of rejected aspects of the personality of the dreamer. The dream points to a dimension of yourself that has been avoided and need to be exposed and dealt with.

The black snake suggests that you are dealing with unconscious drives and hidden desires that are disguised as temptations. Dreaming of a black snake is then a call to discover what is driving you and get in touch with deep longings that you may have ignored until now.

Dream Meaning #4: Black snakes as representation of threat

    Last night I had a dream about a black snake, but it was more then once. The first black snake when I felt it was soft, the 2nd time was I was outside in my backyard walking around while a friend or family member was on the fence talking about religion and how he or she couldn’t decide and why it was so complicated. I told that person it didn’t matter who you believe in so I mention different religions and there was this really big long black snake as I was slowly walking towards the fence to that person. I mention Lucifer if they wanted to believe in him and the snake rose up and look at me. I put my hand out looking at the snake and calling it Lucifer like i was talking to it and I’m not sure if it tried to attack me or what but It just stared at me coming closer and it’s mouth was open but when it jump at me it didn’t exactly bite me. Next thing I know I was in my house and there was a black snake on the floor and everyone was afraid of it. My brother ended up killing the small or medium size black snake and I got upset and mad and ran to it, trying to protect it and pick it up slowly. Petting it i was so upset my brother killed the snake. But i wasn’t exactly afraid of the snake just being more cautious and careful while I slowly walk to the big black snake on the fence again but when I woke up I don’t know exactly what happen and it wasn’t the 1st time I dreamt of a huge her black snake. Can anyone tell me or explain what it means.

    I dreamed black snake in the house, especially in my parents rooms, me and my grandmother was in the room. The snake were in the right side of the door. While packing my clothes and putting it in a luggage, I asked my grandmother, why are there too many snake in the house and she answered me, its a good luck charm. When I look under the bedroom and the footside of the bed, there are more black snake, big and small. It seems like they are in group. All of them are not moving.  I use the blanket to remove them from the pathway,especially the small snake, I push them under the bed, but when I look up, they just move and scattered on the floor. I did it again on second time and the big snake comes towards me.

    I dreamt of my childhood neighborhood. It was real dark and the details were broad.(You know the kind of dreams where things seem “foggy” or “vague.”) I’ve been missing my childhood lately although I’m still very young. In fact I’m pushing 24.

    Regardless, I dreamt of a black python with a rattlesnake tongue. (Like the movie Alien) Sitting in the ditch near the woods. And suddenly I discover a black python swallowing my right arm.

    I feel that the dream means to be too uncarried away and focus on the important things first before they come and bite me.

    My imperfections are the cause of my unhappiness.

    I’ve prayed to God for a second chance. That I’ll wake up in the early 2000s and that my life was like a big giant dream.

    As childish and bizarre as it seems, I wish I can re-experience the magic that early childhood brought. The Christmas mornings, Halloween and birthdays. The cartoons like Jonny Bravo, Ed, Edd N’ Eddy and codename KND.

    I will always be a kid at heart although my body ages, my soul shall be like the little ones Christ talked about.
    The humble spirit and the magic are what I miss. Ask and you shall receive.

    In my dream I was lying on my back with my black cat on my stomach I turned my head to right to see a large black snake coming at speed along a corridor with mouth open. It bit my cat, I jumped up and grabbed the snake by its tail but it managed to coil itself up and bite me on the back of my hand. I was looking at drops of venom on my skin when I woke up.

    My wife sees a lot of black snakes and black cats in dream. Recently she saw a black spotted snake. Tightening her hands and she just shrugged it off, she was calling me or someone to help, but managed to throw it away. The snake left. It came back and wrapped around her. Again after a bit of struggle she managed to get rid of it. Then the snake was in the room and behind the cupboard and stayed there. No one else in her dream was able to see the snake, whereas she could see the snake moving. And also the snake grew bigger each time it came to her.

    Today 9/1/19 at 9:15 I had a dream in which 2 headed black snake was moving on a wall… I saw him and ignored …suddenly after a few seconds I was holding two unheaded snakes and woke up. Last week I had a dream of lizards from everywhere came and felt on me ‘-‘ suddenly worked up !!! Then a week before I remember I had a dream I went in somewhere … I saw the schools and temple near school…people where living in small huts and didn’t had gas stoves n were burning wood to make food n all. There were no TV sets in houses … as if I was in past somewhere … I wasn’t able to get out from there… then I went to the temple and cried a lot and prayed God to take me to my world … then suddenly woke up in bed… and even before a week I got a dream in which I was at railway tracks … I could see people but they ignored me … as if they can’t see me !!! FED UP OF SUCH DREAMS NOW…
