Black is the symbol of potential danger. Dreaming of a black snake means that you should be cautions. Black snakes have a negative meaning in a dream and may point to annoyance, as well as unfavorable developments in your life. You could also make a disagreeable acquaintance sometimes soon.

On a lighter note, it can suggest that you might just simply be "annoyed" with something in the waking world and that is why it is coming through in your dreams.

Black racers and black rat snakes are common, they are both large predators that kill and eat a wide range of animals, including other snakes! The black racer snake is both dark on the top and bottom and has white markings on the chin, the black rat snake has a black back and pale stomach. The other black snakes that can appear during the dream state are the pilot snake. The true name for black snakes are "panthers-his obsoletes" rat snakes normally black, like to live in wooded areas. They hide away in the undergrowth this is significant as it can mean that there is someone that is hiding away true colors.

One of the ancient symbols in our dreams is the snake because the black snake sheds its skin. I need to let you know that the snake can be an omen of peace, healing, transformation after encountering a difficult phase in life. In the bible, the serpent indicates evil and toxicity. So what does it signify when a black snake appears in your dream? What is this omen? This is the voice of your mind, and indicates a person among you who come after you! You should imagine that this dream indicates the blindfold is taken off. If the black snake was approaching in real life it will be super scary, there is a healing that is needed after it appears.

If the black snake was frightening or worried you in your dream then this is an anxiety dream about others.

If multiple black snakes appear then this represents that you may encounter health problems. Always know your role in life. To know what you are supposed to do in life. If you come across a black snake outside then this means that people may poison and uniquely calculate against you - and they hold a different perspective than yourself. If you feel different in life then this indicates menacing people. If the black snake bit you in the dream then this can indicate through it all healing will prevail.
