Friendly Snake Dream Meaning

Javier Fuertes ~ 11/10/2022

Dreaming of Friendly snakes means you are getting in control over your own instincts, forces or internal impulses that very few people can exert.

Dreaming that you get in contact with a friendly snake not only reveals your ability to remain calm and serene in extreme situations, but also that you have good judgment and wisdom when making difficult decisions.

Consider also the option that this dream projects your firm impression that a delicate situation in front of you – in your real life – is not as dangerous as it seems, or that a threat or risk is not as severe as it seems.

Among young female dreamers it is common to have dreams of friendly snakes that they consider as affectionate pets.

As you know, these animals shed their skin and maybe appear in your dream so friendly to give you an idea or advice. Snakes appear to indicate the right moment to change cycle, to renew yourself, to regenerate yourself, to give a different turn to your life, to take advantage of all the resources you have and achieve being that person you want to be.

Dream of snakes is bad?

The answer is “it depends on the specific dream”. I consider it to be bad in many cases, because it reveals that the dreamer is facing a situation or a person that is disturbing her life.

According to my experience interpreting dreams, I have noticed that the snake normally appears to express our . . .
