I woke up from a good 8-hours of sleep and I recalled the strangest detail from my dream. I am a person that believes dreams can be interpreted and hold meaning, so this dream was strange. I hate it when you can’t remember the entire dream. It would help put it into context but…what can you do.
In the dream, I was looking down and saw a green snake. It wasn’t a huge snake. It was a small lime green color and was moving in a circle. I watched the snake move round and round until a bigger green snake came behind it and devoured it! I was shocked but I wasn’t scared. I woke up not knowing what this meant.
While on my way to work I Googled “Dream meaning snake, eating another snake.” I found a couple threads here and there but nothing really made sense. A Reddit thread I found was kind of interesting;
“Actually, in my experience, the ouroboros is a good sign. It’s a symbol of personal transformation. What it means is the old you is used to create a new you.”–RadOwl
Ouroboros is from Egyptian Mythology. He represents an infinite cycle of recreation and destruction.
I didn’t completely trust his explanation.
My culture has taught me that snakes are bad. Snakes should be avoided at all costs no matter how harmless they look. As a child, I grew up next to the woods and my parents were cautious when we played outside.
So I searched again, with my FAVORITE source Dreammoods. Dreammoods said;
To dream that a snake is eating another snake represents your drive and determination to succeed at whatever cost.
To me, this is the same thing RadOwl said. There is something changing in my life. I am growing and changing as well.
