Dreaming that snake bites someone else

Last Updated: November 1, 2020

what does it mean dreaming snake bites someone

It shows your lingering worries about what may happen to other people.
It reveals your internal conflicts.

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

However, that 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.

Remember, 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 we know in real life 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.  

Some expert in dream interpretations 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 know it.


We can gain a better and deeper grasp of a current situation by putting ourselves in the position of somebody else and seeing things from their standpoint.

Dreams of snake biting people

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 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 the employees.

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

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.

Snake biting a little boy

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

In some cases the kid depicted in the dream might 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.

Snake bites a little girl

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

It might also reveal the presence of harmful influences in your life which really have the potential to harm something that you’re starting in your wake life, it is vulnerable and need protection and care, such as a relationship, a business project or something similar.

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

Also, it is possible that the girl could be the embodiment of your sensitive or compassionate side, which is been hurt or challenged for a current situation.

This dream indicates that you may be needing advise or guidance. Alternatively, you are realizing that current family conflicts or disagreements 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).

In some cases, a dispute or disagreement inside your extended family (among uncles, aunts or cousins) could be triggering this dream.

If a snake bites your father it means that there are problems 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.
