Dreaming of snakes

Dreaming of snakes

Dear Janet Louise,
A colleague recently told me about a dream she had in which we were in a room with a large snake. She ran away but I stayed in the room. She said she was worried about me and came back to see if I was okay. When she found that I was, she woke up terrified. I’d love to hear your interpretation of this dream.

Wendy, by email

Dear Wendy,
How terrifying! There are two messages this dream is conveying. Your colleague needs to take stock of her surroundings. Her dream is warning her of someone around her that can’t be trusted. There are worries that are yet to surface in her waking life. The dream also suggests that healing, transformation, knowledge and wisdom are required. There’s a need for your workmate to take a look at how she feels about intimacy and commitment.
