What does it mean to dream that snake bites someone?

Let’s start with the simplest explanation: this dream is uncovering you fear that the person bitten in the dream could eventually be hurt in real life.

If the individual in the dream is unknown or a random guy/gal take in consideration this:

A random individual in your dream can be just like a character representing an aspect or attribute of your personality that is being affected in some way by a current event happening in life.

Ask yourself:

What kind of emotions did your felt when you see that individual in your dream? Usually the feelings that your interaction with random people in your dream gives you will be those that you are becoming aware of in wake life.

Another question for you is:

What is this guy (or gal) doing in the dream that I am doing in real-life? The reason behind this question: this activity you are doing in real life may be hurting or offending people close to you.

For example, if you dream of a random guy being bitten by a snake and nobody helps him, then it could mean that you may feel quite alone and helpless, expecting that nobody showing up to help you o giving you support in case you being impacted by a terrible event.

However, if the person in your dream is someone you know, let me tell you that I have found that this type of dreams usually express you daily concerns and worries about your dear ones: family members, partners, friends and other folks close to you.

In this post I will first talk about dream interpretations for family members being bitten by a snake, then friends and other people close to you, finally the meanings for individuals in general (boys, girls).

What does it mean to dream that snake is biting family members?

I recommend you to think about your last personal interaction with the family member depicted in your dream.

Why?
Because the dream might be connected to that experience and its impact on your feelings and emotions.

Here, listed in alphabetic order:

This dream indicates that you may be needing advise or guidance. Alternatively, you are realizing that your current conflicts or disagreements in your extended family are affecting you in some way.

The image of a grandfather or grandmother usually symbolize large experience or practical knowledge. In some cases they could represent your extended family or the whole family together (parents, uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces, grandchildren).

I have found that even old and new disputes or disagreements inside your extended family (among uncles, aunts or cousins) could be also triggering this dream.

If a snake bites your father it means that there are issues in your relationship with him. Perhaps, you are doing something in waking life that your dad will not accept or tolerate.

If you have this dream, you might be having issues with an authority figure in wake life; perhaps your are looking for some kind of leadership.

If the father character in your dream was protecting you when he got bitten, then it may suggest that you are expecting someone else’s to cover your responsibilities or flaws.

Dream of snake biting other people close to you

Dreaming that snake bites a baby

Oh my God, this is really a bad dream!

If the reptil attacks a baby it means that you are seeing a terrible scenario in real life: abuse or injustice against a little one you know. I remember a reader of one my websites, a Mexican woman in her sixties, she told me that she had a dream for several nights about a viper biting and eating a baby . In real life, she was afraid that her grand daughter was being neglected by her mother who had problems with drugs and alcohol abuse (the baby’s dad was her son, who had passed away recently).

Dreaming that snake bites a coworker

If the snake bites a guy or gal at the office, it could express problems or fears related to your work environment or your job duties. Perhaps your are having issues with your coworkers, or maybe your relations with some of your colleagues are quite bad.

Also, take into consideration that the snake might be representing a toxic or stressful job environment; something that affects the emotional health of employees like you. For example, you may be getting sick of gossip and hearsay among people working with you.

In some cases, this dream is just exposing the simple fact that you hate your job.

Dreaming that snake bites a friend

If the snake bites a friend of yours, it indicates that you may have some issues with your empathy or ability to relate to your friends, since your pal in your dream may be personifying the idea of friendship.

It is likely that you have had a heated moment with your friend in real life, and told her/him hurtful or offensive things.

Dreaming that snake is biting a little boy

The obvious interpretation indicates that you are worried for a little boy you know in wake life.

In some cases the kid depicted in the dream might be representing your feelings towards your children.

For a male dreamer:

  • If a snake is biting a kid, the dream may be suggesting the dreamer’s trouble with inexperience and immaturity, perhaps there is an aspect of his life needing urgent development or positive transformation.
  • A dream in which a little boy is being bitten by a snake could be considered as a warning call: the dreamer should spend more time caring for himself, for his inner kid.
  • It is possible that he is feeling bad because is being treated like a little boy in real life. The snakebite in the dreams represents an emotional injury due to a relationship (or a family/social environment) that makes him feel dominated, constrained, or impotent; perhaps he is not able to make his own personal decisions.

If the kid is playing with the snake it could mean your are being naive or overconfident before a risky situation in wake life. See more in dream meaning of playing with snakes.

Dreaming that snake bites a little girl

This dream shows your worries and concerns in real life in relation to a girl your know. Maybe you have a feeling that something bad will happen in real life to a girl close to you ( a relative, a friend ).

The little girl in a dream bitten by a snake in the dream may personify an adult person you know in real life, someone who displays girl-like reactions or attitudes.

Carl Jung said that dreams use symbolic language to express what is happening inside our minds and hearts. That is why the girl in this dream could represent something that does not have a tangible form in real life: something that you’re starting in wake life, something that is vulnerable and needs protection and care, such as: a relationship, a business project or something similar.

The snake, in the dream, could symbolize the presence of harmful influences in your life with the potential to harm “something” you are taking care of, like a personal relationship, a personal project, as above-mentioned.

Dreaming that snake bites a neighbor

You may have some concerns about the status of your relationship with people living close to you. That is my first observation. Perhaps you are having concerns over the current health of the neighbor depicted in your dream.

Also, as per experience is telling me, consider the possibility that neighbor in your dream could also mean gossip, rumors or bad comments about you or your family.

People in your dream could be showing something about you

Some experts in dream interpretations believe that sometimes a person in your dream can be just like a character representing an aspect or attribute of your personality that is being affected in some way by a current event happening in life.

That’s right, the individuals in a dream could be present there to show something about yourself. Indeed, our unconscious mind is inclined to project traits of ourselves onto people for the sake of drawing to our attention the aspects of our personality that are been ignored or repressed.

Another interpretation says that a snake attacking a random person in the dream might expose one of your personal defects, emotional weaknesses, bad habits, which are uncomfortable or harmful to people close to you.  For example, the fact of being pushy or greedy in relation to something we want so much in life could be impacting on people close to us.

Is it bad to see snakes in my dreams?

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 . . .

Final Insights

Some experts in dream interpretation think that this dream is a manifestation of a deep introspection taking place in the dreamer’s mind. 

Having said all of that, I invite you to ask yourself which interpretation is the most suitable, only you can know it.
