What does it mean when you dream about a snake choking you?

Dream of snake chocking you means you feel emotionally constrained

Dream of snake choking you expresses certain negative influences in your wake life preventing you from feeling good. It is possible that you are going through situations that make you feel suffocated emotionally, such as, for example, economic hardship, family issues, or stress for your workplace.

This dream is being triggered because you are in the middle of a situation in which you are being affected by the strong influence of an individual. It seems that you are in very difficult (personal, social) position preventing you from acting the way you like.

A snake choking you means a suffocating relationship

Another interpretation states that an anaconda, boa or python asphyxiating you can be a dreamlike symbol for a sentimental relationship that completely absorbs you, or for a jealous partner who does not trust you and wants to know all of your actions.

Even a family relationship with your mom or dad could be suffocating…think about heavy responsibilities and duties a family member could be loading on you.

How that makes you feel? suffocated? strangled?

In some cases a snake choking you in a dream could also represent a demanding full-time job.

A snake choking you reveals that a very important deadline is near

It is possible that the dreamer (or her family) is having a bad time trying to keep up with all the daily duties or with personal responsibilities. Perhaps the dreamer has a financial burden that limits her ability to live a normal life, or a deadline to pay off a debt is getting closer.

A snake suffocating you reveals constricting emotions or ideas

Consider the possibility that this reptile representing the dreamlike projection of an aspect of yourself. In this sense, having a dream in which a snake suffocates you would suggest that it is actually you who is suffocating or suppressing your own unconscious tendencies, impulses or desires.
Are you trying to shut up or restrict a very deep part of you that you’re afraid to express?

A snake choking you shows hints of health issues

This interpretation is the less likely. According to it, this dream is disclosing health problems, issues with your respiratory system; perhaps a disease that overwhelms you.
