To see a snake or be bitten by one in your dream, signifies hidden fears and worries that are threatening you. Your dream may be alerting you to something in your waking life that you are not aware of or that has not yet surfaced. The snake may also be seen as phallic and thus symbolize dangerous and forbidden sexuality. The snake may also refer to a person around you who is callous, ruthless, and can't be trusted. As a positive symbol, snakes represent knowledge and wisdom. To dream that you escape from or kill a snake, denotes that you will overcome your struggles and come out a blazing winner. This is a great opportunity for renewal and to make changes.Benedict Arnold, Brutus, Judas, Judas Iscariot, Quisling, adder, anaconda, animal, archtraitor, asp, beast, bend, betrayer, blacksnake, blind snake, boa, boa constrictor, bull snake, bushmaster, cobra, cobra de capello, cockatrice, conniver, conspirator, conspirer, constrictor, contort, copperhead, coral snake, corkscrew, cottonmouth, crawl, creep, crinkle, crook, cur, curve, daboia, diamondback, divagate, dog, double agent, double-crosser, double-dealer, drag, draggle, draw, drift, err, excurse, fer-de-lance, fink, flick, flip, flirt, flounce, garter snake, glide, go adrift, go astray, go on tiptoe, gopher snake, grovel, gumshoe, hale, hamadryad, haul, heave, hitch, hog-nose snake, hook, horned rattlesnake, horned viper, hound, hyena, inch, inch along, informer, insect, intort, intrigant, intriguer, jerk, jig, jigger, jigget, jiggle, jog, joggle, king cobra, king snake, krait, lift, loop, lug, lurk, machinator, mamba, meander, milk snake, moccasin, mongrel, nab, nail, nick, nightwalk, nip, ophidian, pad, pererrate, pig, pinch, pine snake, pit viper, plotter, pluck, polecat, prick, prowl, puff adder, pull, pussyfoot, python, quisling, racer, ramble, rat, rat snake, rattler, rattlesnake, reptile, rove, scallop, schemer, scrabble, scramble, screw, scum, sea snake, serpent, serpentine, shirk, shit, shithead, shovel-nose, sidewinder, sidle, skulk, skunk, slidder, slide, slink, slip, slither, snatch, sneak, snitch, spectacled cobra, steal, steal along, straggle, stray, swine, swipe, swirl, take in tow, thunder snake, timeserver, tippytoe, tiptoe, toad, tow, trail, train, traitor, trawl, treasonist, trimmer, troll, tug, turd, turn, turncoat, tweak, twine, twirl, twist, twist and turn, twitch, undulate, urutu, varmint, vermin, viper, wander, water moccasin, water snake, whelp, whirl, whorl, wind, worm, worm along, worm snake, wrench, wring, yank, yerk, zigzag
