Free spirit, place of peace Show me everything and tell me how
I’m not generally afraid of snakes, but I don’t like them (or even bugs) to be close enough to touch me or to jump out and attack….
In my dream last night I had just left the old apartment and I was walking down the campus center to find something (or maybe I was crawling but everyone else was doing it so it was fine). There are people nearby playing with dogs or something (ok, cool). Then I feel some sort of animal near me (maybe I was laying on my back staring at the sky) but there was a tiny animal under my back squirming around. At first I thought it was maybe a squirrel or a ferret or a kitten. I’m not sure why, but it was important for me to get a hold of it (maybe so it didn’t jump out and attack me?) So I was holding it with two hands behind my back and I realize it’s a snake. A few feet long, and quite wide, and not exactly something you wanna run into or be holding. I wanted badly to get it away from me, but since my hands were behind me back, I didn’t know quite how to do that. The scenery changed again. I was inside some dark and damp and moldy castle-like apartment with the snake and I still just wanted to let go of it. I couldn’t find anyone to help me. There were no people around.
I was just really anxious and I didn’t know what to do. I woke up feeling uncomfortable (and hoping there were no snakes in my room).
Here’s what dreammoods says…
To see a snake or be bitten by one in your dream, signifies hidden fears and worries that are threatening you. Your dream may be alerting you to something in your waking life that you are not aware of or that has not yet surfaced. The snake may also be seen as phallic and thus symbolize dangerous and forbidden sexuality. The snake may also refer to a person around you who is callous, ruthless, and can’t be trusted. As a positive symbol, snakes represent transformation, knowledge and wisdom. It is indicative of self-renewal and positive changes
