Dreaming about snakes can be a frightful experience for many people. It is not uncommon to be afraid of snakes! This is why when we dream of snakes, it is very important to look at the context of the snake in the dream and how it relates to our waking life. Dreams about Snakes
What do most snake dreams mean?
In a situation where the snake is chasing you or biting you in your dream, this is a warning to be aware of your surroundings, Bowman says. Specifically, you might have some betrayal or infidelity on your hands. (Color me surprised that my cheating ex is appearing in the form of a snake). “Snakes are low to the ground and what they do is hidden, so if you’re not looking, you might miss it,” Bowman says. Basically, it’s a sign to listen to your gut instincts.
The size and type of the snake could indicate the size of the issue at hand, Bowman adds. So for instance, if it’s a garter snake, it could signify something fairly harmless going on, she says. But if your dream includes a rattlesnake or any other kind of deadly snake, do not leave your bed without evaluating what TF is going on in your waking life.
Sometimes the snake “bite” could be self-inflicted, Bowman points out. You could be going through a series of changes, which is totally normal and not a negative thing, but this is just a call to pay attention to your own life choices and how they’re affecting you.
Ultimately, these types of dreams represent our fears coming to light, Bowman points out. During this quarantine period, anxieties about health (and work, and politics, and relationships) are completely normal. Dreaming about snakes might even be connected to your breathing or lungs, and stress associated with it, which is not such a stretch during a global respiratory pandemic and reckoning over racial injustice.
How did the snake make you feel? Were you scared and anxious about the snake or were you feeling relaxed? The way the snake made you feel signifies your own feelings about a situation in your life.
What type of snake was it? There are many different types of snakes – dreaming of a boa constrictor for example would have a different meaning than dreaming about a rattlesnake or garter snake.
