Dreaming of big snakes means you feel emotionally vulnerable

Having a dream of large snakes indicates that you find yourself emotionally diminished, overwhelmed or weakened by your current concerns; that is why you may be magnifying the severity of your problems or limitations. Perhaps you are exaggerating your impression and reaction to a new situation in real life that makes you feel uncomfortable; in other words, your insecurities are enlarging the size of the reptile.

It is possible that you are getting the impression that your personal obstacles in front of you outweigh your capabilities; that’s right, the dream may be exhibiting your weakness or fragility in the face of personal challenges. Perhaps you feel you are not ready to face the current issues in life.

Dreaming of big snakes shows the magnitude of your fears

Some experts in dreams interpretations think that a giant snake might be the image created by your dreaming mind to display the depth of your fears about your problems, conflicts, uncertainties or challenges.

The large size of this reptile is expressing your subjective perception about a current situation or scenario you are dealing with, for example: a family conflict that seems to be very problematic and complicated, a personal task that appears to be time-consuming, or any other issue that requires an excessive amount of effort and resources from you.

Think about the possibility that this dream is exposing the simple fact that you are afraid that something annoying or irritating will get worse. Perhaps you are having growing concerns that current problems may become more tedious or overwhelming.

Keep in mind that dreams have the ability to show you images (the giant snake) to visually depict your fears and other the elements present in your unconscious which -obviously- lack a physical form in reality.

Dreaming of big snakes means harmful influences

A huge snake in your dream could symbolize a hurtful or negative presence in your life; perhaps a toxic or unpleasant character (think of an individual who has influence or power over you) who can disturb your emotional state.

The large snake may also reveal a circumstance or personal conflict in waking life that has grown excessively and is now disturbing the normal pace of your daily activities, even causing severe consequences.

In some cases, the giant snake may represent a work environment that is toxic and harmful for you. Indeed, think of the company where you work as an organization or social structure with the power to limit your personal freedom, set you mandatory deadlines, punish you, or even eliminate you (fire you). In this line of interpretation, the snake may also embody a boss or supervisor in your workplace, whose management style -or just his or her influence- seems toxic and intimidating to you; being these last characteristics the ones we often use to describe snakes.

This dream could be showing your sense of terror or helplessness in the face of a threatening situation that seems daunting to you.

Dreaming of big snakes means key deadlines coming up very soon

This dream can also express your growing anxiety because you feel you are not ready to deal with approaching deadlines.
The huge snake could be a dreamlike symbol warning you of responsibilities or commitments that are quite painful or overwhelmed to fulfill.

Maybe you have been procrastinating on chores or personal projects.

Dreaming of big snake means a stressful work environment

In some cases, a huge snake means a lot of work pressure on the dreamer, look at the following dream shared by one of our readers, a woman in her middle forties:

“I dreamed that I was with my work group and suddenly I saw a giant boa with a huge head coming to my office, I managed to close the door so that it couldn’t attack me; however, the reptile manages to touch me with his tongue and bite my right arm.

I woke up totally scared, and touched my right arm !”

This dream speaks to serious problems in the dreamer’s workplace. The boa with a gigantic head that can devour its victim would represent her work anxiety that threatens to suffocate, consume, oppress or devour her emotionally.

Another way of looking at the boa is like an individual with power, authority or influence who is able to inspire fear (supervisor, superior or owner of the company)

Dreaming of a giant snake may suggest that the dreamer has a growing physical or mental ailment, or a serious illness that has aggravated or spread to other parts of her body.
