Snake

A snake in a dream often represents someone in waking life who is capable of attacking without warning (snake in the grass). Owing to Biblical teachings, snakes also can represent deception, betrayal, and temptation-and people who speak with "a forked tongue." (Liars.) Snakes are also an archetypal symbol of the life force, strongly associated with psychological growth and healing. Because snakes shed their skin, ancients believed they never died, and held the key to eternal life. In yogic practices the serpent energy (kundalini) lays coiled at the base of the spine, rising through the chakras (subtle energy centers of the body), with growth and spiritual development. Caring for a snake in a dream indicates a positive relationship with creative energy. Snakes may function as phallic symbols due to their shape.
