There are various factors that you need to consider when seeking an interpretation. Generally, the image of either a snake or serpent represents your power within. It is important to understand that this dream equals some kind of emotional storm in your life, normally as mentioned in the opening sentences above, around relationships and energy.

If you have a snake around your body and it bites you, this can show some type of entrapment and ongoing problems in a relationship. This can signify marital difficulties and divorce. Even though it may be a negative situation and cause problems, the feeling of happiness will return eventually. If you see a snake on top of a dead body biting it, this represents the sexual act of intercourse, but can also show control over your libido. If you see in your dream a dead body and a snake or worm inside the corpse biting it or eating it, according to Freud this is directly associated with passion that has not been recognized in the waking life.

Dreaming of a snake in the grass that jumps at you and bites you means that you are going to hear news that will upset you, and which involve frustration, regret and depression. If you are swallowed by a snake, then this means you need to consider your reasons of thinking negatively, and you need to return to the real world and be content and happy. If the snake is surrounding your body and keeps biting you, then this dream is a direct interpretation of entrapment, which may be connected to a love affair. If you are swallowed or eaten by a snake, this shows that you have upset too many people around you at the moment, and it is time for you to seek space.

If the snake that bites you is poisonous, then this is a direct representation of your fear. To dream of a viper bite it indicates that forces in your working life are threatening you. If you dream that the viper attacks you, then your enemies are going to encircle you in order to find your weak points, and they will try to ruin you. It is important that you recognize any problems with responsibility that you have. To dream of many snakes biting you it means that a person is going to make sure that you are displaced.


If the snake in your dream changes itself into another person, this can indicate that it is time to give up a bad habit. If the snake bites you and the bite is not fatal, then the dream relates to patterns that you have formed in your life. If the bite was fatal, then you have an enemy around you at the moment. To feed a snake and get bitten in the meantime means you have been undertaking hard work and it is time to refresh your mind and think about what will make you feel all creative.

The Asp is the modern Anglicization of the word Aspis, which in antiquity referred to one of several venomous snake species found in the Nile region. If your dream involves seeing an Asp, this is a negative dream for a woman, and it indicates that she has a few enemies that want to do her harm. If you are a man, this indicates that you are going to overcome any difficult problems in regards to a masculine situation. Cleopatra tested a wide range of deadly poisons on condemned people and animals for her entertainment, and she concluded that the bite of the Asp was the least terrible way to die. Therefore, in dream terms, it is important to understand that bad times are not that bad in the bigger light of things.

Feelings that you may have encountered during a dream of snake bite.

Terrified. Surprised. Anxious. Worried. Strange. Insecure. Confused. Overwhelmed. Offended. Scared.
