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

    My dream was of a big black snake following me everywhere. It seemed more like a sort of pet as he was sleeping next to me. Some times I was afraid, at some points I was thinking it is friendly. Suddenly my mother came and said: why is the snake sleeping next to you? She took the snake by its tale and she throw it away…

    I dreamed that I and my father were giving money to help people then when we are walking there was a water near our home and I washed something on it. When I touched the water there was a black snake and the stomach is white, then I ran coz i am scared and the snake is following me and I went up stairs. Then my father is looking for it and it’s gone. Then I woke up… and go back to sleep again and my dream continues… when my mother wants to go out in the area where the snake is hiding she wrapped all her body to avoid the bite of the snake.. then not so clear if I saw again the snake but I woke up scared…

    My dreams started with some of my family and friends going on a trip. We are at a hotel and there is a church group there and many others. My dead grandma is also in the dream (she died two years ago). When I first see a small black snake my friend says he need to hide it so it doesn’t cause harm to anyone but I am too afraid and just run up the stairs to our room. The dream continues and I am now about to go swimming with my niece, sisters, and my friend. I notice the snake I saw before and now a new black snake with brown patterns on its stomach that is much bigger. I grab my niece and run up to my room but both follow me. The big snake almost bit me and so I run back down stairs to get away from it. When I go to sit back down my niece comes running down the stairs and the big snake is following her. I grab my niece and the big snake slithers under my grandmas legs and bites her. My niece then gets up and tries to get it off of my grandma. It then looks toward my niece, someone grabs the snake and it turns out it has 2 heads. They pull it apart and girl twins then appear. Then I woke up.

    I had a dream last night, i was going on a two wheeler to another nearby city and in between i stopped somewhere and i found there are so many people living there and around 5 dogs, two were german shepherd, one labrador, one pomrenian and one street dog, i played with them, when i left the street dog followed me, suddenly i found myself in home and saw that a complete black snake is coming towards me, and all of a sudden the street dog appeared and swallowed the snake (did not eat), after covering a little distance he puked the snake, and the snake was still alive, the snake ran but i found him in trees suddenly.
    I do not know what all was happening, but i am really confused.

    I was waking up in the middle of the night (in my dream) and I felt something in my bed and it bit me I ripped it out quick and I couldn’t see because I didn’t have my glasses on and it was dark in my room and at some angle in the moonlight I saw its face and I knew it was a black snake and then I got bit again but a bigger one and it bit me on my thigh and I just felt like I couldn’t move and I was screaming for my brother to help. But then I just woke up.
