If Snake has slithered into your life…

Transmutation is the key word here. The shedding of old skin and emotions and transforming them into something bigger and better. If Snake winds itself into your life know that change is in the wind and that you are at the center of it all as the catalyst. Make sure that your intentions are clear and that you have clear a clear sense of the direction that you need to strike out in. Snake is letting you know that these changes are safe and that there is no need to fear them.

You are also being reminded to stay connected to the self through observation of both the tiny vibrations in the earth, and the warmth and smells of the air and sky. When we learn to connect with our surroundings we can continue on the path of growth, and discard the trappings of the past.

If Snake is your Animal Spirit Totem…

People with snake as their totem are often finding that they are going through constant changes in their lives that they usually move through smoothly. They have a natural ability to balance energy and often Snake totem people are gifted healers.

You are very charming in social situations, and very good at holding people’s attention, there is something mysterious about about your gaze, your intensity, and your ability to sense what other’s are thinking or feeling. Tied in with this charm is a confidence and self assurance that many people find alluring. Snake people can slither in and out of conversation with ease and grace, and are often flexible and open minded.

If Snake comes into your Dreams…

To see a snake or be bitten by one in your dream could mean that your hidden fears and worries are coming back to bite you. It could also be alerting you to something in your life that you are not aware of or that has not yet surfaced. Alternatively, the snake may be seen as phallic and thus symbolize temptation, dangerous and forbidden sexuality. In particular, to see a snake on your bed suggests that you are feeling sexually overpowered or sexually threatened. You may be inexperienced, nervous or just unable to keep up. If you are afraid of the snake, then it signifies your fears of sex, intimacy or commitment. The snake in your dream may also be referring to a person around you who is callous, ruthless, and can’t be trusted. As a positive symbol, snakes represent healing, transformation, knowledge and wisdom. It is indicative of self-renewal and positive change.

To see only the skin of a snake in your dream could mean that you are being protected from illnesses.

Occasionally a snake without any eyes or without a head could signify that you are ignoring the danger in a situation. Alternatively, it could also mean that you are going to be blindsided by something.

  • I often dream of snakes … I associate them with the divine feminine, and misunderstood goddess power. However, there is an innate fear to them.

    Lately, I have had an intense struggle … where it seems I have to choose between facing fears (and letting go, grieving some intense losses) and moving ahead, or giving up altogether. Grandiose stuff … like choosing between a huge life-fulfillment (why I’m here on this planet, now), or dying (my body has been seemingly falling apart).

    I mentioned to my partner that I sensed that it feels like a snake is lurking, waiting for me … I heard something, looked out the door, and saw a bull snake immediately outside my doorstep. The timing was uncanny.

    Any sense of this?

    • Hello Dena: The message of Snake at this time is to stop fighting and battling everything in your path. Embrace your life as it is now so that any struggles you have can dissipate and take care of themselves. Only with surrender can you move forward at this time.

  • Hi there!
    In the beginning of the year I was walking with my children on a dirt road and a very colourful snake; red and black and maybe orange (probably poisonous, from what we heard) crossed the road right in front of us. My 8 yo daughter saw it first.
    Then last week I was walking on a cobblestone road in a park and almost stepped on a snake (light green and yellow) which was trying to also cross. A very un-wild, civilized park where nobosy I know had ever seen a snake before. It coiled up and faced me in an attack posture, and we looked at each other briefly, until I recovered my senses and called for help. People gathered and said it was a poisonous snake.
    Then I remembered the one last :shock: January and wondered- is there a signal, a message, a meaning for me? It hasn’t been an easy past 2 years, by the way.
    Thanks for your insight.

    • Hello Maria: Pay special attention to the messages in the quotation box of Snake. They change with each visit and will be appropriate to the occasion. Snake is symbolic of change and transformation and it appearance usually heralds the end of one phase of your life and the beginning of a new phase. The phases can be subtle or as tumultuous as a move ac cross country.

  • In my dream… someone was scaredly pointing at a rattlesnake in midst of a school cafeteria or a center… I looked around and saw my dog (who is missing since Aug 13th) and I ran to meet Zab. I held Zab in my arms and when Zab opened her mouth, there was a rattlesnake coming out. I was petrified as I don’t want rattlesnake to hurt my dog, I pointed out with my index finger to allow the rattlesnake to bite onto and I pulled the snake out of Zab. The snake continued onto the bite on my finger and I cut off this snake’s head… it went limp and then I realized the poison was in my index finger. I went ahead and carved a deep portion of my index finger to the point where it became disfigured. During that process, in my mind – there was nothing that could take Zab away from me even when a poison could hurt me. I instantaneously woke up.

    What does this dream try to tell me?

    • Hello Mary Ann: In this case I believe that your dog is representing your loyalty to yourself. Whatever situation you are involved in right now you should remain loyal to yourself. Do not sacrifice your own integrity in order to help someone else. The rattlesnake is warning you that someone is trying to manipulate you.

  • I have been seeing or right word would be hallucinating snake for past two weeks. Its not a dream. Somehow I keep having this feeling that the snake is around and leaves me scary and weird feeling all together. No I am not on drugs. So could you please tell me why I keep feeling like that.

    • Hello Kacy: You’ve been procrastinating over a decision you know you have to make. You are afraid of the consequences of this decision but know in your heart it is the right move. The snake is simply reflecting and allowing you to feel your own uneasiness and fear of these changes. Once you decide you won’t have time anymore for those fearful emotions because it will set off a whirlwind of activity toward reaching your goal.

  • Hello all,

    I had a dream this morning that as I was laying in bed, I stared up at my ceiling. I saw a beautiful big pink spider with red accents weaving and sitting in a large web. I beca scared because I felt something slithering up my body and caressed my face. It was a snake. It didn’t bite or attack in any way, but I was still afraid that it might because of how a lot of people say to be aware of them because they might bite.

    • Hello cherrybc: I would suggest that your dream is warning you that you are repeating a pattern from your past. Often in life we get the same lessons over and over again until we learn to respond to the lesson from our hearts, rather than fear, anger and vindictiveness. The Spider in this dream is letting you know that you have the power to transform your lesson. Find alternative ways to resolve your current dilemma.

  • Thank you for the info provided. I saw a dream last night where one of my neighbour sitting in a park and holding a snake. She told me I am not afraid of the snake. I didn’t see the head only the body. I was not afraid at all of the snake but only thought in my mind great she is not afraid at all.
    What does this mean can I know please? Do I have to be cautious in any way.

    • Hello Suji: The Snake in your dream is letting you know that there will be a friend who is fairly close to you that will trigger some sort of emotional transformation for you. Embrace the changes.

  • So my snake gave me a premonition like 3 weeks ago and today it came true. advice on how to proceed

  • And I forgot to mention that a water moccasin got into my building ( a building I am transforming into a school) from the courtyard.
    And the next day, my brother-in-law wanted my shoe size so that he could buy me some moccasin boots (okay, that was reeaally freaky) :wink: :grin: :roll:

    • Hello Norma: How amazing the energy of our Animal friends can be! Your Snakes are all about the transformations you are currently accomplishing. Water Moccasin has the added element of emotional transition. You are growing in leaps and bounds and your Reptilian friends are there to help you.!

  • Thank you for this information. I have a book called Animal Wise that I usually consult, but I wanted to hear/read a little more. I am in the midst of a very major undertaking in my life, and it has been fraught with setbacks. I re-”stumbled” upon videos of Esther Hicks channeling Abraham and much of what was being said resonated with me. Then, one day, I came across info where Abraham was accused of being of the Reptilian race. That morning, the reptile references began and did not stop. Two hours later, my pastor spoke at length about the area of the brain considered to be reptilian – that same day I spoke with him about my current situation and truly felt like I was shedding skin. The next day, I “stumbled” upon an article about a tribe from Africa who believed they were from the Reptilian race; I went into the store and at the checkout counter was a pamphlet with snakes on the cover; I couldn’t sleep for snakes on my mind – the references were so many I decided there had to be a message. Even today, I read an article about a family whose house was overtaken by snakes. Thank you again for providing this information; it is quite apropos at this time in my life.

  • I had a strange dream of a snake eating a pickle. I wasn’t afraid of the snake but I thought it was very odd. I been trying to interpret but I’m not finding anything that really resonates…. The last time I dreamed of a snake my life transformed although the transformation wasn’t a smooth easy ride it was well worth it because I’m a much better person. So now that I’m seeing a snake again I’m like oh my its time to hold on to your seat belt you’re about to take a ride but the eating of the pickle is confusing me.

    • Hello Jade: I suspect that the Snake dream is certainly heralding in a new transformation. This one I suspect will have a lot to do with your sexuality. Part of the human growth process is coming to terms with our sexuality on all levels – the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual levels. For women this usually becomes significant in the pre-menopausal stages of our lives during which we usually attempt to get comfortable with our sexual fantasies.

      best,

  • This info on snake medicine really helped me clarify and become more aware of the changes that are currently happening in my life and how to best embrace them. I have been reading about animal totems for many years now. The way you explain snake medicine is very much appreciated, it is easy to understand and utilize. The information is authentic, intriguing and practical. Blessings and Gratitude!

    • Thanks… it’s always good to hear that this website is helping others find their way.

      • Thank you for your reply Silken Raven. Yes, my cat had found a gardner snake a few weeks ago and was sitting by it, enjoying its company. It was beautiful for me to see them together, but I am sure the snake was not as pleased! The cat didn’t harm it and eventually the snake slithered away. The cat lead me to the snake medicine. A blessed experience. Animals are amazing.
