In the world of dreams interpretation the blue color expresses tranquility, emotional calm. Blue is a color representing the sky and sea waters; it suggests also reflection, honesty, relaxation. Consider this interpretation more closely if the reptile neither attacks nor threatens you.

In some cases, this dream may be saying that you are experiencing guilty or shame; maybe you are fearing that the most negative aspects of your personality (or your bad deeds) might be exposed to others.

Snakes inside a box or a drawer is interpreted as an image or symbol for your repressed emotions and feelings. It is possible that you have some difficulties or fears at the moment of expressing what you really feel.

This dream may be revealing that you find yourself in the middle of a difficult dilemma. It seems to you that none of the possible alternatives seems to offer a positive result.

Dreaming of a snake turning into another animal

This is the kind of dreams that are not only intense but charged of symbolism. Obviously, your dreaming mind is using the image of these animals to communicate a message.

A guideline to facilitate the interpretation is to ask yourself what emotion you felt when you saw the emerging animal in the dream. Was it fear, hatred or perhaps affection or compassion? For example, if the snake turned into a spider or another insect and you were less afraid, then the dream means that the problems or obstacles in front of your are turning to be less complicated or scary.

If, on the contrary, the snake becomes a dog, cat or other domestic pet and you feel relieved or satisfied as a result of this mutation, then the dream indicates that an alarming personal scenario in front of you turned to be a pleasant opportunity to develop a positive aspect of yourself.
