According to psychologists, dreaming of a reptile, especially a black snake, indicates changes and disturbances in your life.

If you dream of a black snake, chances are that you are living a happy life, but you are still looking for your true goal. Dreaming of a black snake is associated with a state of bewilderment, a desire to discover and develop yourself.

According to Sigmund Freud, father of psychoanalysis and author of On Dreams and Dream Interpretation , dreaming of long objects or animals is associated with feelings that are being repressed or unsatisfied in the friend. Dreams about black snakes usually have three meanings: Bad omens, dark forces, and lust. However, to understand the meaning of dreams, we need to consider the whole context.

Relationship trouble

When around one or many black snakes trying to attack you in your dream, it means you are feeling threatened. You are facing many difficult situations, everything you do is not easy and you feel like everyone is trying to take something from you.

If the black snakes bite you, it means that there is a temptation lurking around you and you cannot control it. This situation can symbolize your marital relationship is in jeopardy and you will have to work things out.  


If in a dream, black snakes do not attack you, it is possible that in life you are making a wrong decision and cannot be resolved. You are frustrated and afraid of failure. Relax, learn and approach the problem from a different angle.

If you dreamed of a black snake just crawling around you, it is only a warning and your wish to relax.

Fear of facing 

Dreaming of a black snake chasing you usually means that you are hiding from someone or something. You try to hide your fears for fear they will bring serious trouble. However, it is the lack of courage that hurts you the most.

Whether it's a relationship, work, friends, or health issue, it's time to make tough decisions and face reality. You may need help, but remember that you are strong enough to get through it.

The possibility of betrayal

This meaning is less common, but dreaming of a black snake chasing you can also be a sign that you are very worried about your personal life and relationships. The person closest to you doesn't fully trust you or someone close to you seems about to betray you.

Insecurity in a relationship

Feeling insecure in your relationship? A third person appears and you are overshadowed. You fear that your loved one is betraying you or that a third person is sabotaging your relationship.

This dream could also symbolize your disappointment about the secrets between you and your loved one.

Sexual repression

Dreaming of a black snake in bed can mean that you are holding back your desires, possibly out of fear, shame or resignation. You are not satisfied with your intimate life, you may have started thinking about your loved one being unfaithful... But don't panic, the black snake reminds us that we are acting irrationally and are Try to deny your desires and feelings. Dare to speak up and be honest with the person you love, because only then will you get rid of this uncomfortable feeling.

Innovative and wise

To dream of a black snake slithering under water means that you are facing your fears but not letting them dominate. In many cultures, snakes are a symbol of protection, so you can stay calm. You are renewing yourself, you are growing, and these efforts will pay off very well.

Let yourself flow like water and don't be afraid of obstacles. Sometimes difficulties knock you down, but from there you will find your hidden potential.

Leadership and Confidence

If in a dream you see yourself fighting and killing a black snake, there is nothing to worry about. The snakes are not there to warn you of the arrival of threats. They appear to indicate that you have finally found something. You are full of strength and always strive to achieve all the achievements. Wear obstacles that may appear, because you have prepared to confront them very carefully.


Closely related to the previous meaning, the image of killing a black snake in a dream can also symbolize that luck is near you. Good things are coming and it is in your hands so seize the opportunity when it comes.
