Dreaming of a colorful snake

Dreams have the peculiarity of creating representations for things in your mind that do not have a material form (your reactions, impressions, attitudes). In this sense, a dream in which you see snakes of different colors exposes problems, complications or changing events, before which you do not know how to respond nor their consequences.

These colorful reptiles can also represent people or situations that make a pleasant first impression but do not keep our expectations over time. 

We may have dreams with a multicolored snake when in our real life we are facing situations or scenarios that capture our attention due to its attractive appearance but -at the same time- they may complicate our personal plans or daily routine.

This dream means that you are having strong emotions capable of disturbing your tranquility. 

Maybe you find yourself experiencing new situations and don’t know what results to expect.

It can also reveal a psychological state (such as a feeling, an emotion, an attitude) prevailing over other ones.

Some experts in dream interpretation think that a well-colored snake is considered a dreaming figure alerting you of the danger close at hand.
