Dream of snake: What meanings?

Dreaming about a snake is one of the most common dreams about snakes, which causes us to wake up with a feeling of fear or unease. Do you want to find out the meaning of this dream and why it is so common to dream of snakes? There are many interpretations depending on the content of each dream and it doesn't always represent something bad. Here are all the meanings according to the dream details.



Dreaming of a snake: What you need to know

According to Freud, the grass snake is the phallic symbol par excellence. Freud recounts a typical dream of young soldiers, separated from their wives for months: a snake in a pond or a lake, which rises and grows bigger and bigger, turns into a dragon and comes out of the water.

If a girl dreamed of the grass snake, it may represent a hidden desire. If the grass snake in the dream attacks the girl, bites her and blood comes out, it probably means that she was attacked by a man. If there was no physical attack, it means that the girl or woman in question suffered other injuries, but always from a man.

According to Freud, the grass snake can represent fear of sex, possibly due to aggression, but also fertility, desire, hatred, danger and much more.

Traditionally, a serpent represents evil, deception and temptation. In the Bible, it is a snake that incites Eve to eat the forbidden fruit. The serpent in Christian tradition is often seen as an animal of the underworld, a messenger of the devil who lures people into darkness, depravity and evil. The main method he uses is temptation and seduction. 

It is said that snakes catch frogs by temptation: once a snake finds a frog, it looks at it with its eyes until it hypnotizes it. Thus, the frog finds itself jumping almost by itself into the snake's mouth. 

The snake is therefore a symbol of this kind of power which seduces and hypnotizes. Therefore, in the dream, the snake can represent an evil, cunning or charming person, who could be part of our life.


Dreaming of a snake - interpretation of dreams according to Jung

According to Jung, the snake represents wisdom, when the dreamer is in a phase of conflict and deep thoughts. The grass snake is the animal of the god Aesculapius, and in ancient China it was a sacred animal.

The grass snake, by its shape, is also associated with the spine. In dreams, spinal injuries often come in the form of an injured snake.

The coolness that characterizes snakes also makes them a symbol of a person's emotional indifference. Some species of snakes, such as boas and pythons, grind their prey before eating it. For this reason, the snake in the dream also symbolizes a person who "takes your breath away" or traps you, causing you to lose your independence.
