All about snake dreams meanings & symbolism

Dreaming that snake bites my dad

Last Update : May 17, 2022

Having a dream in which a snake attacks or bites your father means that you are afraid that something bad will happen to your dad in real life.

Indeed, according to my experience after having interpreted more than 6 thousand dreams, I can say that this dream usually expresses your current feelings towards it. You may need to address or fix the problems you have with your parent.

What does it mean to dream of a snake bitting my father?

If you dream of a snake biting your father, that means your relationship with him is really deteriorated, and also you may be thinking that there is an urgent need to re-establish the damaged emotional connections with him.

Perhaps the current family environment in which he lives is not the optimal or the most appropriate, a setting which is very different from what you would like for your father. Maybe you’re worried about his partner, his friendships; it is also possible that you have the suspicion or conviction about those people being a very bad influence for him.

If you dad is sick or ill in wake life, then this dream may be dramatizing your lingering fears related to that. In many dreams I have helped to understand I found that the snake sometimes may represent a serious illness causing harm. Remember, some dreams seem to be crazy, but this some kind of logic behind them.

If your father in your dream was protecting you when he was bitten, then he may suggest that you are waiting for someone else to cover your responsibilities or failures.

To dream that snake bites your dad. Other interpretation

This interpretation has a psychological perspective. According to this, it is possible that dreaming of a snake biting your father reveals your own insecurities regarding the performance of your role as a parent.

According to this reading, your father in the dream would be a symbol representing the father figure. For him to be bitten by a snake would mean that you have difficulties or doubts with your ability to make decisions or to resist stumbles or adversities.

If you have this dream, you may be having trouble with an authority figure in waking life; maybe you’re looking for some kind of leadership.
