Snake falling from trees Dream Meaning

Dream of snake falling from trees means you are afraid of being exposed to harsh criticism from people close to you, it could be family members, friends or neighbors .

Seeing snakes falling from a tree reveals you are worried because you have been impacted by gossip, nasty rumors or ill-spirited comments from people at your workplace, it must be a toxic work environment. Perhaps, you have been unfairly evaluated at the company where you work.

If you see snakes falling from trees next to you in a dream, it means that you are expecting to get unsettling, distressing or alarming news in the following days.

The image of many snakes coming down from a tree can be the symbol for persistent problems or conflicts coming from many years from the past, tensions of differences which well rooted in an aspect of your waking life. 

In some dreams I have helped to interpret, trees symbolize highly respected old people, perhaps individuals with social influence and support. In other words, snakes coming from a tree means you are expecting to get bad news from an individual whom you respect a lot, someone you have in high respect.

If the snake falling from the tree is flying, you should read seeing flying snake in dreams.
