Snakeskin Colors – More Interpretations

Dreaming of snakes changing colors

This dream may expose your volatile attitudes or reactions to ongoing events in your daily life. Perhaps you are experiencing unstable emotions or inconsistent attitudes regarding your current problems. 

Perhaps, this dream is showing that you have different & confusing emotions.

From another point of view, this dream means that you are facing situations, people or emotional conflicts you cannot bring under control, let alone fully understand. The dream might be showing that you do not know how to react in front of changing scenarios or evolving situations in real life.  

A color-changing snake can be considered the dreaming image that represents an individual – in real life – who is disloyal, duplicitous or emotionally unstable, someone who changes feelings or opinions constantly, an individual who does not show his/her true character. 

The same idea behind this interpretation may be extended to include some scenarios or relationships -in waking life- with the potential to give you a hard time. 

Some experts think that it is possible that the dream is disclosing a fickle and capricious personality.

Dreaming of snakes with many colors

Basically, this dream means that you are in front of situations that catch your eye.
Red snakes expose the dreamer’s intense emotions such as anger, frustration, outrage. On the other hand, yellow snakes could indicate that there are problems with an excess of energy or enthusiasm, or perhaps there is growing anxiety due to a lack of decision in dreamer’s life. Green snakes mean immaturity, greed or perhaps emotional recovery.

Dreaming of dark-colored snakes could express a pessimistic mood.  It could also make visible the dreamer’s emotional confusion. 

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.

Dreaming of very brightly colored snakes

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.
