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.

    Dreamt a massive anaconda was swimming through a river and it crushed a boat with people on it, i was watching through a window high up this is all I remember but I can see it so clearly I just wanted to know what it meant. I didn’t feel any fear of the snake either.

    I’ve had the same dream 2 nights in a row. The first night consisted of my family and I being in a pool enjoying our time. As we’re getting out we see a HUGE black and orange snake curled up in the corner of the pool. After I woke up I didn’t feel any emotion towards it. The second night, we were all aware of the snake from the beginning and stayed on the opposite side of the pool, but never got out. After we were done swimming, I reached in, grabbed it by the head, crushed it, and threw it over the fence. I woke up and still feel nothing.

    I saw me and a strange lady in place I use to be in my childhood. The lady was in the clear water with some swans and the water was clear and a large space. Now I came to get in the water and the lady left yelling to make sure the swans foot reach the water until in half. Don’t let them exceed. I then saw the swans kept swimming and I was looking over them so they can’t be drowned. I saw the water now in a smaller space like a bathtub. There were two swans about that was drowning and I was walking with nude feet in the water to save one that was all the sèl in the water walking. While I was trying to save the swan I heard something when I looked I saw a big and long gréions brown snake swimming and about to bite me. But my mom on the other side took my hands and take me out of the water. There was a black shoe on the side of the bathtub so the snake bite the shoe. My dad was standing on the bathtub corner to take something from the top and the snake was on it way to bite him in his feet and me and mom was calling him to be careful and move away. Then I wrote up like with fears and look around my bed if there were any snake.

    I had a dream that I was in an outdoor blue swimming pool (think someone else was in with me) and there was this big snake.. I remember for a while me and the snake were completely calm, by one end of the pool. I was terrified of it though. but then I had to leave the pool and the snake got angry and I was trying to hold it away from me but it kept coming for my face. Someone (might of been the snakes handler) got it away and out the pool for me.
