An adder is a beautiful creature. Unlike some of the other snake around I found it interesting that the adder cannot poison you. Symbolically and spiritually I believe that the adder can represent happiness, unlike some of the ancient dream dictionaries. I also feel, from my own experiences that the adder can affect our emotions going forward. This will be a minor effect because the snake itself is not poisonous.

Commonly, this snake is normally found in Britain and various parts of Asia. Can you remember the color of the snake in the dream? If the snake is gray with markings that are black in color this is a male adder. I have read in old dream books that this dream can indicate masculine tendencies.
