Key Interpretation Tip #1

The most important point to remember when interpreting a snake dream is that the presence of a serpent in your sleep means you’re symbolically receiving a wake up call from your unconscious.

In conclusion, when you’re dreaming of a snake, you can use your interpretation to encourage positive changes in your life.

    I had a dream about a grey snake with red eyes. His mouth opened sideways. I had to keep his mouth shut to prevent him from biting me, but I couldn’t handle it. He bit me on my right wrist right where the vein was. I felt it. It was the worst pain I had ever experienced in my life, even though it was a dream. I ran to my brother screaming for help. Everything was blurry. I kept looking down at my wrist, crying. Can anyone help me to figure out what this dream means?

    I’ve been having the same thing happen in my dreams over the past few weeks. I have a snake as a pet. Starts off as one boa. I am trying to take care of it but it is not tamed and starts to bite my forearms. More snakes appear and I cannot control them all. I don’t want to set them loose because they are pets. Trying to get them all into cages they keep biting my arms, their fangs get stuck in my flesh and I have to rip them out. More and more snakes start appearing and I am afraid because some are exotic and poisonous. I want to help them but it’s too much for me to handle. I can’t save them or myself.

      Hi Kayla! I had to respond to your post because I’ve has the same dream repeatedly for a couple years now! I have a snake as a pet too, and I keep dreaming that I have too many snakes and not enough cages and there’s nowhere for me to put them all and I’m trying so hard to keep them all safe and healthy but there’s just too many and they are attacking both each other and me. Why are we having this repeated dream about having too many snakes for pets???

    I dreamt of the snake’s eggs at first. They were in the ground where I used to play when I was a child but now it’s abandoned to go in there because the ground is sold and someone else is living life in there. However my mother was with me when I saw them. There were a lot of eggs and I was terrified to see it. Then we reached home and the first room that I entered was full of my whole joint family. The moment I stepped in to the room, I saw only one snake and after I sat in the bad I saw many other snakes which had huge dots on them. They were moving under bed to sofa. They behaved as if they were crossing roads, from bed to sofa. I was so terrified to see them but my family members weren’t and I was surprised to see that. Then again, a family member of mine stepped down on the floor where those snakes where coming back and forth and I was crying for her to climb back to bed but she was like chilled. The snakes didn’t even hurt her, they passed by her legs but she was unbitten. Then I saw another family member catching alot of fish from the Same room and she gave it to my mom. I don’t know where the fish came from. They didn’t even exist at the first, they suddenly appeared and were captured by my family member. My mom took the fish and kept it on the floor of kitchen. After that my pet dog appeared and she insisted to go in the room full of snakes. I was so worried about her because she’s always been a daughter for me. So in order to stop her from getting inside, I picked a fish and started to show and give it to her but as soon as she had her fish, she somehow managed to get into the room and went under the sofa and I started weeping and another factor is that a sad background music started to play outta nowhere. She remained stiff and nobody could take her out. So I started to weep alot and my mother surprisingly carried me like a baby though I am 19 years old and took me to another floor but still I kept on Weeping.Then my mother again brought my dog to me and when I saw her I was again weeping with the sad background music still on. She was bitten by a snake on her nose bridge and I had no idea what to do. I kept on helding her and weeping but nobody seemd to care enough for her when in real life she is the apple of eye for everyone. Then I woke up and found myself sleeping yet weeping in real, the background music still on my head but was somehow relieved to see my dog sleeping soundly on the floor. And I became quite emotional and affected by the dream for 15 mins. I have never seen a dream with snakes. What does that mean?

    I dream a lot. It is annoying sometimes, weirdest dreams! Last night i had several. One that caught my most attention was that i was walking with my 9 year old son, even though he seem younger in my dream, maybe about 6. During our barefoot walk, which was close to rivers, streams and the ocean we saw a very slim snake but it was long about 4feet. In reality I am phobic of snakes, if i see one i feel like passing out. When i saw this one in my dream i jumped it and ignored it, while holding my sons hand, but he let go of my hand and reached down for the snake. The snake bit my sons left index finger, he screamed loud in pain. And even though i was completely scared I tried for the snake to let go of my sons hand and finger. I grabbed it, and it wouldn’t let go. I finnally ripped it apart, threw the two pieces to the side. I grabbeb my sons finger and squeezed it as hard as possible,and all the venom started splurging out, then two tiny pieces of something came out after all the venom was out. Then my dream ended.

    I was listening to a story on CreepsMcPasta’s youtube channel about a severe snake bite that led to a man’s death.  After I went to bed, the only part of the dream I remember is getting bit by the same snake in the back from the same voodoo ritual and I woke up with my shoulders burning.  It’s a week later and I still have a stiff neck and sore shoulders.  I’m not superstitious and I don’t believe in magic, I’m sure a fly bit me in my sleep or I strained a muscle.  Things like this do make me stop and think, sometimes.

    I dreamed I was outside in the yard when I heard my oldest daughter start screaming from inside the house that a whip snake had biten her in the sole of her foot. I ran inside and saw her holding her foot where it had been bite. At that point I woke up. When I woke up I got on Google to see if there was a snake called whip snake and sure enough there is a nonvenomous whip snake.

    I dreamt I was walking on a footpath by the side of a road. There were many green snakes hunting for prey and a large number attacked a bird that had landed. They were all over the road and footpath and I was trying to avoid them. A car went past and I thought it should be safe to quickly cross the road to get to the other side where there were less of them. As I was crossing a large green snake lunged at me, I kicked it away a couple of times and then woke up while diving across the bed to avoid being bitten.
