Many people see snakes in dreams, so what does it mean when you dream about snakes? Let's find out!
Throughout history there has been an instinctive fear of poisonous snakes and so for many there is a deep emotional fear of snakes embedded in our subconscious.
So to have dreams about snakes can actually represent fears or concerns that you may have in some part of your waking life. So any situation in your life where you may feel fearful, anxious, tense, sense potential danger, or a sense of mistrust in your life, then you may see snakes in dreams.
If you are confronted by a group of snakes trying to harm you then this could represent some part of your life where you feel like people are ganging up on you or turning against you for example.
2. Hidden or forbidden knowledge
Snakes by nature of the way they move on the ground are perceived as being relatively hidden from us and so snakes in dreams can represent something hidden from you or something that you should not know about.
A dream about snakes can therefore suggest that you have hidden fears, worries or a threat of some kind, there is something in your waking life that you don't want to face or accept perhaps.
3. Change or transformation
Snakes shed their skin and this is perceived as a form of rebirth and so dreaming of snakes can symbolize transformation or change.

The dream can also symbolize transformation in the form of spiritual development. Perhaps you are being more open to spirituality or focusing more on your natural instincts.
