Dreaming About Black Snakes

By on January 21, 2019

Having a dream about a black snake can be a very frightening experience, especially considering that the particular hue of black represents a negative energy or dangerous connotation. And while most black snake dreams have a powerful, yet destructive meaning behind them, there are certain situations in which a dream about a black snake can be somewhat positive.


Positive Outlook on Black Snake Dreams

  • Before we dive into the negative meanings behind seeing a black snake in your dream, let’s figure out some positive ones.
  • If you return home and you are not scared but are rather happy with yourself, this could be a sign that you have conquered whatever negativity was trying to bring you down and you can proceed with life.
  • If you wake up and realize you know who is causing the negativity in your life and you know what changes need to be made, that is a great indication that the black snake undid your blindfold and you can now see the light.
  • Waking up and realizing the problems you need to fix as soon as possible is also a very positive outcome of having a black snake in your dream.
  • When the dream was ending it was a positive experience, no matter what happened through the rest of your dream, you can wake up knowing it was not all for nothing and figured out a solution to the problem.

Black Snake Attacking

Let’s say during your dream a black snake attacked you, and you really couldn’t defend yourself too well from it. Having a dream like this can mean that you’re having difficulty with coping in different areas of your life. You need to look deep into your mind and heart to discover what things you’re being unable to cope with. Even if you think you’re perfectly happy on the outside, there may be some deep-seeded issues you need to come to terms with.

Black Snake Cut in Half

During your dream, if you stumble upon a black snake that is completely cut in half, you can chalk it up to the message being that you need to do better in social situations. Perhaps you’re a bit on the mean side when it comes to new people, or you’re overly distant and shy? Having this dream indicates that you need to cut those bad habits in half when it comes to socializing. You need to make a change with yourself and realize that you can give respect and kindness to others, and they will return the favor.

Baby Black Snakes

Simply put, the baby black snake represents the small amount of finances you may have. The baby snakes is a sign you need to get back on track with money and quit spending too much.

Black Snake is Threatening

If in the dream the black snake is frightening to you or threatening you in any way, this may be a representation or a troublesome person in your life. It is a big sign that you need to let this person go and move on with your life, or they will continue to destruct it any way they please.

Black Snake in the Wild

Finding a black snake in the wild is typically a sign that you are delving into some dangerous situations. What you need to do is remove yourself from these situations immediately so you may find peace in your heart and mind.

Oftentimes in dreams such as these, the black snake will actually say words to you. It is important to recall and remember the words, as they are usually a small insight of wisdom that you need to listen to and apply to your life.


Having a dream about a black snake is typically associated with something negative. But don’t think of this as an all around negative experience. Take the dream as a warning. See what things in your life you need to get away from or change so that you can have peace all around.

Have you ever had a dream about a black snake? Did it end up helping you to make changes in your life?

    Last night I dreamt I had this white shirt on and I looked over my shoulder and saw a black tail. I realized it was a small black snake/ baby. I threw my shirt off and saw it fully and tried to pick it up with the shirt and I lost it. I couldn’t find it and then I woke up.

      This dream may be an indication of your thoughts related to fears that you may have. Snakes are often manifestations of concerns or worries that you may have in your life. The shift may have been an indication of your social expressions. Make a decision about what you want for your future. If there is something in your life that you need to address, then do so. Have a great day, Melissa!

    I had a dream few days back where I saw multiple black snakes, many small ones here and there, inside some place where I live with my husband and child. But I don’t remember the details of the place now. All of us were clearing off the snakes, taking up the snakes by hand and putting them in polythene bag :D. Though in real life I am dead scared of snakes!! All the snakes were under blankets, cushions and all and strangely when we find a snake it wont try to crawl but only jump. They were moving by jumping. While I was checking for snakes under a blanket in a couch I found a very big black snake. It looked at me for few seconds and jumped on me and then i got up and the dream broke. Thank God!
    I am confused as to what this means. I have not seen a snake in dream for more than 10 years in my dream for sure. Hope you can help me with the meaning of this dream.. Thank you.

    I just had a dream where there were sharks and then I woke myself up and went back to sleep and had a dream I was in an old parlor shop. The other staff said that there was some snake issues so they had fake snakes around. Somehow a small black snake found its way around my left wrist. I was wearing a sweatshirt hand the sleeve fell down over the snake and I was scared to move and have the snake move it way deeper on me. I remember saying, well I guess it’s mine now, as a joke but I was terrified. Then I woke up.

      The sharks and snakes may be manifestations of various concerns or worries that you may have in your life. It is possible that you are dealing with a fear. Many snakes are not harmful and shark attacks are rare, so it is possible that you are worried about something that will likely not harm you. Ensure that this dream guides you to share your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will draw positive people and energy into your life. Have a great day, Courtney!
