Dreaming of a snake hiding means personal issues you can’t control

A dream in which snakes are hiding and you cannot find them means you have frustration -or dissatisfaction- over matters you cannot manage in real life and also for things, situations or personal projects that you are not able to achieve.

Take in consideration that the snake may represent something in your real life that it is very hard for you to fully understand, and that is why it is tough to take control of it.

Snakes hiding shows that you should be very careful

It is possible that your dreaming mind is telling you to be on constant alert against potential threats or negative influences in real life (which are represented by the snakes in dreams).

Also, this dream is suggesting that as long as you stay vigilant your potential problems will not materialize.

Likewise, consider the option that these negative influences could be very difficult for you to confront or resolve, because they are hard to see or distinguish.

Snakes hiding means you need more attention

Having repeated dreams with snakes hiding might be the way your dreaming mind is expressing your helplessness and disappointment because you are not getting the affection or attention of a close person in your life.

This dream might also be showing your growing frustration for not getting a social or professional recognition that you think you deserve.

Snake hiding shows that something which had looked bad wasn’t like that after all

This dream may be exposing a situation or scenario that initially looked complicated and intimidating (triggering despair and insecurity in you), but that was easily resolved over time. Perhaps your fears did not come true.

Having a dream with a snake fleeing or escaping migh reveal a shy, timid or scared individual.

What is the meaning of hidden snakes in dreams?

Dreaming of hidden snakes means threats, obstacles or challenges that were unknown in the dreamer’s conscious life. It is possible that this dream has been generated by the discovery of details, hints or clues suggesting the existence of such threats in real life.

Some experts in dream interpretation -followers of Carl Jung’s ideas- consider that the hidden snakes represent latent aspects or traits of your own inner world, which attempt to manifest or communicate through your dreams. According to these scholars, your dreaming mind is creating images or symbols (the snake) to reveal those elements in your mind that do not have a material form.

That’s right, the hidden snakes might be showing an aspect of yourself that you’d be repressing or ignoring. Perhaps the snakes really express the memories that you wish to disappear or forget forever, or maybe the things in your mind that are constantly disturbing you (a trauma, a complex, or your personal limitations); elements in you that are very hard to confront and get rid of.

Dreaming of small snakes

Also note that the small snakes or vipers in your dreams reveal questionable decisions or small personal risks you’ve taken recently; it seems that your dreaming mind -the maker of your dreams- generates the figure of this reptile to embody some personal choices that have the potential to get complicated or bring you greater problems. 

The question here is: Aren’t you underestimating possible or future threats?

Dreaming of snakes on a tree

You may have the feeling of real –or potential– conflicts lingering in your relations with family members or among people at your work. The reason for this interpretation is the similarity of the family offspring with the structure of a tree, with the grandfather as the trunk, the children being the branches, and the grandchildren the leaves; remember the expression ”family tree’.

The same meaning can be applied to the organizational structure of your company for which you work (a retail, a factory, a transnational company).
