Q: I have dreamed of being bitten by a snake many times. What does it mean to dream of a snake shedding its skin last night?
I am 19 years old, a school student, female, and unmarried. Since last year, I have had dreams of being bitten by snakes many times, and every time I dream about snakes, the scene is at or near my grandma’s house.
Last night I dreamed of a snake shedding its skin. In the dream, I was being chased and escaped through the back door of my grandma’s house. Behind my grandmother's house was a rice field, and there was a big river next to it. I had to swim to the other side of the river. But the rice fields were covered with snake skins, and there was also a golden snake skin. I made the snake pretend to be my back, so that the people chasing me would mistakenly think that I was still here. But there were snake skins everywhere, and I felt that the river was full of snakes, so I didn't dare to go into the water, but I still went into the water, full of fear in the water. Then I don’t remember it.
Dreams reflect fear and anxiety about sex
Grandma usually represents the safety and innocence of childhood
Dreams about being chased reflect stress and distress
The other side of the river means the transition to a mature state
The snake’s skin change actually reflects the updates of your inner concepts
Because the snake also symbolizes spiritual wisdom and intuition, just like the snake prophet who tempted Adam and Eve in the Bible
You went into the river in the end because you faced the challenge bravely and allowed yourself to mature spiritually
