Dreaming about snakes biting your legs might be expressing your disappointment at seeing that your personal projects or ambitions are not being fulfilled or reached, maybe something is happening outside of your plans.  

Snake biting your leg shows disruption in your life

This dream can just be uncovering your anxiety due to an abrupt halt in your personal matters or in a key activity in your family or work life.

It is likely that the snake is representing something negative and dangerous in wake life that comes from nowhere (usually the way snakes attack in real life) to alter your daily routine.  

This dream may be hinting to the existence of an unforeseeable situation which is suddenly imposed on you, a new event or circumstance undermining your day-to-day life.

Dreaming that snake bites your legs shows vulnerability

Having this dream could be revealing that you are feeling emotionally weak, perhaps you have recently lost your self-confidence. It is possible that you are harboring doubts regarding your real capacity to influence events around you; perhaps you are having questions over your ability to handle future situations in your own life.

Pay attention to this interpretation, if in the dream you had a fight with the snake but could not avoid the bite.

A snake biting your leg in dreams means lost of personal autonomy

If in the dream a snake bites your leg and you are not able to walk or run, it may be disclosing a loss of personal independence, or perhaps dissatisfaction by not being able to do your personal business all by yourself, and needing help from others.

It is possible that your dream is showing your fear of something going wrong in life, and because of that you could loss access to resources that enable you to enjoy your current personal lifestyle (money, time, tools). Perhaps you are worrying about losing a good job.

Snake biting your leg displays an emotional blockage

The legs are the dream symbol that represents movement in one aspect in your life. A serious snakebite in your legs shows a deterioration in your ability to move emotionally for one stage to another.

If you have this dream, it is likely that you are having the impression of going nowhere in your current job, career or relationship.
