The small snakes in our dreams may express something about ourselves, something little and hidden that usually make you feel a little bit scared.

Dreaming of very long snakes

Dreaming of very long snakes or vipers would reveal the existence of difficulties -in waking life- with the potential to lengthen or extend in time or magnitude. It may also uncover some setbacks or obstacles which can trigger serious and prolonged consequences.

Remember that dreams always speak of your inner psychological world and that the snake can be the dreamlike expression of a negative trait of yourself. For that reason dreaming of long snakes could mean something negative in your life (a personal conflict, an illness, a period of depression) that has expanded, dilated or grown excessively, and now you are afraid that getting rid of it will take a a lot of effort and time.

Dreaming of a very long snake can show your anxiety at the possibility of being involved in a stressful, overwhelming or suffocating circumstance, maybe a relationship. The reason for this interpretation is based on the fact that the longest snakes in the world are the anacondas and pythons, which are stranglers; they kill their prey by constriction (choking them) not by poisoning.

This dream would be indicating that the dreamer is facing an intimidating individual in real life, who threatens to dangerously overwhelm her personal boundaries.

Perhaps you are afraid that a troubling or stressing situation will persist much longer than you expected, impacting areas of your life that you considered safe and stable.
