The snake is close to earth energies and represents life force. Since it’s a reptile, the snake spirit animal is reminiscent of unconscious drives and primal instincts. When the snake spirit animal shows up, pay attention to how you use your energy, and where you draw it from.

If you see the snake as your spirit or power animal, be sensitive to your healing abilities towards yourself or others. Cultivate sources of energy and support, especially as they relate to the earth and nature.

In ancient traditions as well as modern times, snakes are symbols of healing powers and opportunities. In the Greek mythology, Aesclepius, the god of medicine, is featured with two snakes climbing up a rod, the symbol of what is known today as the Caduceus.

The snake and spiritual guidance

The snake can symbolize spiritual guidance. The presence of the snake in your life often means that you are in a period of transition and it points to ways promote your personal growth.

Snake could appear as a spirit animal when you are stepping into the unknown and need support to move forward. This animal is typically close to the ground and can remind you of staying grounded as you move through changes.

Dream interpretation of snakes

When a snake appears in your dreams, it most likely acts as an animal spirit guide inviting you to look at important facts or dynamics that are impacting your life. Snakes featured in dreams often leaves a strong impression on the dreamer: Such dreams tend to be frightening or disturbing because they call on strong unconscious energy.

Whether the snake spirit animal featured in your dream leaves a positive or negative impression, its presence should be considered as an invitation to look at positive changes and transformation.

The dark side of snakes in dreams

When the snake appears in your dream leaves you with a negative feeling, make sure you consider positive meanings as well. The snake spirit animal often appears in dreams as a warning about personal struggles and the need to pay attention to things or events that are escaping your field of awareness.

For instance, when you dream of being bitten or attacked by a snake, it could mean that you need to be careful about important matters you’ve been ignoring so far. If the spirit animal featured in your dream in the shape of a snake is chasing you, it may represent a challenging situation or relationship that you have been avoiding and is pushing you around.

The bottom line is that a dream featuring a snake invites you to check what in your life is “poisonous” and to look at important matters before they sneak up on you and create more damage or difficulty.

    I never would have guessed a snake would have been one of my animal guides before. After reading it makes perfect sense. Snakes have been popping up in dreams, thoughts and around me in my life lately and instead of fearing this , I need to embrace the guidance they are sending me. This has touched my heart and I so understand it’s meaning. Thank you and those who walk beside me .

    This makes perfect sense for me. I am currently leaving a job (I’ve had for 18 yrs) where I am being harassed by a manger for the last few years. I just woke up from a powerful dream where I saw a big long snake moving around a porch outside of a house where I was staying at with friends. Ths snake was out of sight for a few minutes and then suddenly reappeared again when I stepped out onto the porch, I grabbed its head and with the help of a friend who handed me a glass, I started milking the snake’s venom.For me this dream interpretation is right on the money – make thanks for this wisdom teaching …

    My husband and I are traveling in Costa Rica right now. We were on a nature tour and I alerted the guide that there was a snake on the trail. He looked pretty harmless but the guide told us that it was a bush master, the most poisonous and rare snake in Costa Rica! I was a little scary but the snake didn’t bother us and the guide took pictures and was super excited about it

    My husband dreamed that we saw a GREEN Snake in a TREE by a LAKE, I got a bow and arrow and shot it, then I grabbed it by the tail and pull it out of the tree. He was SHOUTING for me to let it go, not to do that.

      Well first of all tree means money and life (tree of life), 2nd green means envy or money or healing, 3rd snakes can mean sexuality, healing, transformation and danger. 4th water means emotions and cleansing. My first thought was that your husband has a friend or colleague that is envious of you and your husband but your husband has a relationship with them whether it’s male or female and there are a lot of finances and emotions tangled up with him and this person, that’s why he was mad you shot it with an arrow. But also could be someone that you are jealous of or that wants you to be jealous of them or your husband wants you to be jealous of them. Just be careful because it sounds like your husband is defense of this person and or project.
