Dream Meaning #1: Green snakes as symbols for personal growth

Because the color of the snake is green, the dream suggests that a transformation is occurring in your life quite organically, naturally, just like when plants grow on their own. Perhaps you are discovering new aspects of yourself or nurturing a relationship or project. To dream of a green snake indicates that you’re undergoing personal growth and inner transformation.

Depending on the shade of the colored snake, you can find additional meanings regarding the quality and characteristics of your personal development.

Dream Meaning #2: Connecting with your true self

Green snakes are strongly associated with nature and the earth. What in you is moved by the presence of this snake in your dream? How does the creature or the dream relate to an earthy, natural part of you that is in the process of emerging?

As green symbolizes what’s natural, earthy, a dream about a green snake may mean that you are reconnecting with more grounded qualities in yourself. At least, it’s a call to pay more attention to what helps you ground and find enough energy to support you in living and expressing what’s true to you and in you.

Dreaming Meaning #3: Symbolic representation of new beginnings and positive change

The color green may point to some aspects of yourself or a project in your life that is not “ripe” yet; in other words, you are dealing with just the beginnings. Green on a snake is about the come back of the energy of positive change in your life. Depending on how the snake behaves in your dream, it could reflect how you are embracing or coping with the change: Are you experiencing it as aggression, threat, death of old patterns? Or are you at peace with this evolution?

Green Snake Dream

The green snake in your dream is then likely a call to take care of an opportunity for growth that you may otherwise be missing. It could indicate the need to nurture a bit more something that is just starting to emerge in your life, whether it’s new habits, a relationship or personal project.

Dream Meaning #4: Shades of green snakes and their meanings

The shade of the colored snake will tell more about the meanings conveyed in the dream. Darker greens generally have negative connotations associated with jealousy, perhaps deceit. Lighter shades of green express opening up to healing, opportunity for growth. A balanced, healthy green suggests strength in your personal growth, steadiness and determination. It could also be a symbol for serenity, calm.

Even though green is archetypally associated with nature, healing, and growth, your interpretation will benefit from looking within yourself to find out what green means to you personally. In addition, consider the behavior of the snake in the dream. It may give clues about how you are experiencing some changes that are occurring in your daily life.

    I saw a green snake in a tree. I was gripped by fear and wanted to run away but the snake indicated (not spoke, more of used nonverbal language) that I had nothing to fear. I asked what wisdom it wanted to impart to me. It came out of the tree and went to a box, which it showed me. The box was like a gift, wrapped with a bow. Then it vanished and the dream was gone.

    i was searching for the snake in a home (not mine) like it was a pet… and i was connected to it.. We found it and made it sit outside. It was a green color snake in a sitting position on some broken wall and i am sitting down watching it happily (like its close to me). Morning I wake up and dont see the snake and i try finding it.

    I had a dream about being at this new job that I am starting today. One of my colleagues brought a green snake to work. The snake bit my left hand and I’m right handed. Somehow it let go. I ran down the hallway and it began to chase me down the hallway. It almost got to me a couple more times but I got away. Then I woke up

    I dreamed of a light green snake all over the place, tons of them actually. Scattered. Crawling on the outside of my car while I just sit there and drive through them but they’re all over the place, crawling on my window and the road.

    I dreamt that a bunch of puppies were under a porch. I began counting the puppies and noticed right in front of me a green cobra ready to strike. One of the puppies came up between me and the snake and the snake attacked the puppy and killed it.

  • Delmarie

    I don’t know what to make of this dream. A child, about 6yrs, had this dream and I am trying to interpret and understand. He keeps saying he dreams of a green and black snake with red eyes and red mouth (possibly blood?). I asked him what the snake does and he said the snake eats a hole in his forehead then comes out at the back of his head. Is this reason for being concerned??
    Thank you

    • Aleana Young

      Yes, I would be concerned. I am a psychotherapist and have a lot of experience working with kids. He May be fearful of something, not feeling safe, having anxiety, or he is watching scary movies! I would talk more with him and see if there is anything bothering him. Is he displaying any abnormal behavior?  Of course, he can always see a counselor!

  • barbara

  • Pruthi

    I dreamt of a light green coloured snake staring at me and attacked and killed my associate instead and returned back to the wall from where it came and kept staring at me from there. What could this mean ?

  • Fred

    I dreamt last night about a darkish green snake who was about to bite my cousin. My mother tried to kill the snake with a broom but the snake was already gone.

  • Pami

    The green snake was staring at me protesting preparing to strike and I was feeling fearful.

  • Dana

    I can’t really interpret your dream, but it’s super interesting. The color green is associated with the heart chakra, which is where the snake was trying to enter your body. Snakes can mean healing or other things we associate them with. Could your heart need healing that your husband can’t help you with? Or could it be that, if you associate fear or pain with snakes, that your husband has somehow hurt you?

  • Mary Patrick

    I dream the snake was light green and it was curuled up and was not moving

  • Sam

    In my dream a green cobra snake appears to be hanging over my head as I’m walking carrying my sleeping infant niece on my neck. The next thing I’m in my room and the cobra jumps off my head to the corner of the room and disappears. Any interpreter who can help clarify this to me. Thanks.

    • Wilson54

      Holy shit, my dream was exactly that but without a niece and I woke up right after I went under it and it hissed at me

  • Jessie

    I dreamed last night that I see a lot of green snake in the house I entered. I see my aunts and I see my father smiling at me. But when I see the wood on the roof of the house I see a lot of green snake. When I go down to the stairs 2 snakes bite on my shoulder and when I’m on the floor I have a lot of green snakes on my left arm and I’m squizzed their head trying not to bite me but still they bite me. And I’m wake up it’s almost 8am in the morning.

    I had a dream that I was climbing a tree. Once at the top, I noticed there were many green vipers with hints of blue. I became concerned for my well-being, and decided to climb down quickly. While climbing down, by foot got caught and I found me self dangling from the tree by by foot. I felt a snake on my back, so I tried to plan how I would get out of the situation. The snake then slithered up my arm and bit me on my right hand. My a started tingling and I grabbed the snakes head and tried to kill it. Then it bit me on my left hand and I woke up.

    I had the following dream last night,and its been bugging me the whole day.

    I dreamed that there is a swallow nest in the shape of a small wooden house.This nest was connected to a basket on the other end.It was like a pendulam scale,if weight is added on the one side(the wooden house) the other basket lifts up,if weight is removed from the wooden house (in this case when some of the swallows fly away) the other end lowers.

    This is the background of the dream.

    Now what happened was,I founded a little bird that was injured,I picked it up and did not want to set it free,I then walked to the place where the bird house was,and as I approached the swallows flew away and the house part raised and the basket end lowered. I then put the injured basket just to see that there was a green snake in the basket,I only saw the snake as I put the bird in the basket and then backed off as I am afraid of snakes.

    The swallows came back into the house and the basket end raised and I was not able to reach the basket to save the injured bird.

    The thing is, the snake did not eat the bird as it looked like it already had eaten something as its head part was still big,giving me the idea it is busy digesting something.

    What does this mean??

  • Helen

    I deam of a green snake it was like it had drilled its head in my chest/heart as if it was trying to get in my body through my heart. I held its neck trying to to stop it going in and ask my husband to cut its next off but he didn’t and I woke up
