Dream Meaning #1: Be aware of your emotions before they sweep you up

A dream about a snake in water symbolizes the connection with your emotions. Typically, the snake comes as a warning sign or a wake up call about a situation that is potentially threatening and associated with strong feelings.

If the snake swims peaceful in calm waters, it means that you’re dealing with your emotions positively and with ease. If you dream about a snake that bites you while you’re swimming, it could be interpreted as a warning to pay attention to your emotions before they strike and go out of control.

Consider the type of water you or the snake swims in in your dream, your reactions towards the snake, and the behavior of the animal to interpret what emotional mood is influencing your life right now.

Dream Meaning #2: Snakes in water as symbols of emotional healing

If you are comfortable in the water and the snake’s behavior is friendly or neutral, it means that you are at peace with your emotions. The presence of the snake could indicate that you are healing emotional wounds or dealing with a situation that’s potentially challenging with ease. The dream may also reflects your desire or hope to clear some worries with regards to a close relationship or a situation that touches you deeply.

Even if you’re dreaming of swimming with snakes and are afraid of them in the dream, you may be facing difficult emotions in your life, but are going with the flow and trying to deal with them. If you are struggling in the water or with the snake, it indicates that you are resisting feelings or a change in your waking life.

    Last night I dreamed I was standing at rivers edge and in front of me was a huge snake that was enormous in size like a serpent. It’s body was coiled and it was going in and out of the water sometimes thrashing. I looked to my left and my mother was sitting on a log. She had no reaction to the snake as if she didn’t see it, even though she has bad vision she should have seen it, I was not afraid of the snake but I did not want it to harm my mother, I would look at her and then the snake going under and coming back up and thrashing back and forth, shocked that she had no reaction to it. As it went under again I finally said, ” Ma don’t you see that snake?!” And when she turned her head to look a big black dog came up instead and was frolicking and playing, however I saw the snake while semi emerged morphing into the dog. I stood there in disbelief and was wondering how did this snake just turn into this happy dog. I stood there with frowned brow, I was irritated by this and was wondering why I was being toyed with, why did the snake put on this show for me to see and then morph instead into something else making me look like a fool, I was pissed off by this and then my alarm went off and I woke up and resorted to google to see if any one else has had a similar experience.

    In my dream my boyfriend and I were walking thru a field that seemed fine, we were making casual conversation until we reached a small stream,as we were tiptoe leaping thru it I saw a baby black and white striped king snake, I said “oh my God look there’s a snake” and we both started running back from where we came, when I turned around and looked there had been king snakes everywhere in that stream we just didn’t see them until we ran from the small one, but now on the way back across the field there are green ones sporadically placed thoughout the grass and we’re just running, aware of the possibility of getting bit but not overcome with fear, and this time there is a set of concrete steps we run up then across more of the same field to safety, I can’t seem to figure out if this has a good or bad meaning

    I dreamt of a snake swimming in the small pond in my school and my 3 friends and I were walking to our class then the snake suddenly jumped outta water and glides fastly towards one of my friend and I screamed her name to come back to where I was standing as the snake glided in front of her. When I screamed, the snake stopped and looked around. I was the closest one to the snake. I inhaled deeply and the snake looked to its left which was on my right then i had a bottle on my hand and thought of throwing the bottle far but i inhaled deeply again when i wanted to throw the bottle and the snake stared into my eyes. Then, i woke up.

    I dreamt that I had fallen into the water and drifted for a long time. When my feet finally touched, I made my way to shore. I tripped on the way out, and when I looked up, there was a black and white striped snake. It bit me all over, at least four times. I get onto land and realize I need help. So I find someone and we call 911; they’re going to send a chopper. While waiting for them, I noticed something in the snake bite. It had injected fish babies that grew inside me. After I pulled them out, I just gave up on the chopper and went to work instead. But when I got there, the person who found me said I needed to be on antibiotics quickly or I might die. I don’t remember the rest.

    I dreamt I was standing on a dock in the winter in the north. The weather was cold but the water wasn’t frozen yet. I was staring into the water when all of a sudden a white and red frozen snake floated to the top. Then suddenly there were tons of frozen snakes in the water. I stayed silent but in my head I was screaming and my heart was racing with fear
