What does dreaming about The Snake mean?
Dreaming of a snake, or being bitten by one, means 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. As a positive symbol, snakes represent transformation, knowledge and wisdom.
Predator: One symbolic interpretation of The Snake is a situation that is eating you alive. Occasionally it may refer to a person who is chasing you romantically or a rival in love or at work
Discord: When we see The Snake we should consider that it may be a warning or refer to an argument. You could be feeling threatened or intimidated – just relax and call on your spirit animal to guide you.
Questions: Where do questions need to be asked or answered? Is someone asking questions about you? Where in your life is there a question mark that needs you to provide the answer?
The Snake can signify a professional person or a situation that can’t be resolved without professional help such as medical, legal, religious, loans
Upright Meanings: truth, strength, action, legal disputes, cause and effect, karmic justice, courage, determination, integrity, justice, heroism, law, honesty, conviction, consequences, virility
The Snake relates to karmic justice, legal matters and cause and effect. The Snake is showing you that all actions have consequences. So look at your present circumstances in that context, how have your own actions contributed to where you find yourself today? Are there any karmic lessons that you should be learning from your current situation? This major card is also a signifier of legal matters being resolved in a fair and balanced matter. This is usually a favorable omen if you are involved in a legal dispute. The Snake is concerned with truth and integrity, so you may find yourself compelled to speak the truth and that you more than ever value honesty and integrity in others. The Snake also relates to balance. It may signify that circumstances may arise that could throw you off balance. These circumstances may or may not be beyond your control or of your own making. Either way, you must try to keep yourself on an even-keel as events unfold. The Snake can also indicate that you have a choice to make when it appears in your readings as you will be weighing up all your options and balancing the scales.
Reversed Meanings: unfaithfulness, corruption, karmic retribution, sickness, dishonesty, unfairness, weakness, injustice, lack of accountability, pettiness
Whether reversed or upright, The Snake deals with the idea of karma and the law of cause and effect, stating that all events, and all people, are connected. Not everything you are dealing with, however, is a direct result of your own actions or karma. Sometimes you will be called upon to deal with the results of the actions of someone you care about, and this can sometimes be as difficult and demanding as it is when you’re up against something that is completely of your own making. In reversal you are especially encouraged to know whether a given issue is yours or someone elses. Don’t blame yourself unnecessarily.
