Real Dream Interpretations

Three headed snake in Dreams

Javier Fuertes ~ 01/10/2023

Dreaming of a three headed snake means that you feel affected by three problems at the same time. In some cases it could represent three individuals people you know, people you do not trust.

If you have this dream, it may be hinting that you find yourself at a strong dilemma or personal crossroads. None of the possible alternatives seem to offer a positive outcome.

Consider the possibility that the three-headed snake is representing one obstacle with different expressions and manifestations; perhaps a disease with multiple symptoms.

Snake with 3 heads in Dreams

Having a dream in which you see 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.

That’s right, seeing a snake with three heads reveals that you feel threats and worries in different aspects of your life; for example, you may have the feeling that the problems of your work, relationship problems or the like are presented to you at the same time. The number of snake heads could represent the number of threats or fears you are suffering from in your life.

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 very lonely and had started to drink too much alcohol.

Dreaming of pythons, cobras, rattlesnakes or pythons with many heads usually occurs in people who are in a state of deep worry, anguish or despair.

The number three is very important, do not take lightly, because it indicates that you have a choice between three possible alternatives or choices.

Dreaming of a headless snake

If you dream of a snake without a head means that you do not want or 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.

Dreaming of snake with heads on both ends

If you see a snake with head on both ends is a very symbolic dream, and it is usually a symptom of bad news for the dreamer, because she is in the middle of a unsettling situation in which she does not know what decision to make, being terribly pushed in two opposite directions. Possibly, the dreamer has to choose between different rivalries, maybe individuals who hate each other.

It can also suggest personal contradictions between what you do in daily life and what you actually feel or think.
