All about snake dreams meanings & symbolism

Dream meaning of snake’s head

You feel that you can no longer postpone or run away from your conflicts and problems.
Your enemies or rivals appear to you frontally.

Dreaming that you see only the head of a snake can have a positive interpretation, because it can reveal that you are quite ready to face your greatest fears.

Consider this interpretation if in your encounter with the reptile you fight it, attack it, make it flee or- better yet- if you are able to kill it.

If you see a snake with many heads in your dream

To see a snake with more than one head in a dream is showing that you are having threats and worries in regards with different aspects of your life; for example, you may have the impression that troubles in your job, in your relationship or the like are happening at the same time.

According to my experience in the last years helping people to better understand their dreams, I can tell you that dreaming of snakes, boas, cobras or vipers with many heads usually happen to people who are in a state of deep worry, anguish or despair.

In some cases dreaming of a snake with many heads may be revealing that the dreamer has many terrible things occurring in her life simultaneously, things which could be linked to one big personal issue.

A while ago I helped one of my blog readers (a young mother) to interpret her dream of a three-headed snake.
In wake life, she was having a hard time because of three huge problems, all of them happening almost at the same time:
She had postpartum depression, and the day before she had just learned that her husband had been cheating on her during the pregnancy, she felt depressed and lonely, had started to drink too much alcohol.

It seemed to me that all of her problems were coming from her toxic relationship.

The number of snake heads could represent the number of threats or fears you are suffering from in your life.

If you dream with a headless snake

Seeing a snake with no head means that you do not want or you cannot see the problems and/or threats that arise. If the snake has no eyes, it suggests that it is you who is being blind to the situation or reality represented by the snake.
