My Girlfriend and I Had the Same Snake Dream on the Same Night!

Other people’s dreams are never interesting…except when they’re about sex & relationships. If you’ve got a good one, our dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg just might tell you what it means! Click here to submit yours (18 and older only for dream interpretations, please). This week, a reader asks Lauri about a snake dream (or is it a penis dream?):

My girlfriend has a dream that a black snake was approaching where I was sitting and I didn’t run at first. The snake got closer and I ran into a room where her family was and the snake died at the gate.

That same night, I dreamt a black snake was beside my bed and upon waking up to see it, it stroked and bit my penis. It went straight to bite it.

Can you help me with an interpretation on this dream kindly? Thank you!

Lauri:  When two people have the same or a similar dream on the same night, it is because they are dealing with the same waking life issue and are trying to work through it in the dream state. Odds are, whatever the issue is, you and your girlfriend must have discussed it or tried to deal with it the previous day and went to sleep with it on your minds.

That being said, the snake is a HUGE clue as to what this common issue is. Snakes in dreams often represent a person in your life that is exhibiting low down, dirty behavior or a toxic situation that could wind up biting you if you don’t handle it correctly. 

According to your dreams, you and your girlfriend both seem to fear there is a toxic person or situation right now concerning you! From your girlfriend’s perspective, you aren’t doing enough to remove yourself from the toxic environment since you did not run from the snake until it was almost too late. However, in her dream the snake died, which suggests she feels the situation may now be over.

In your dream you wake up to see the snake bite your penis. That means you have recently “woken up” or become aware that there is a problem. To the dreaming mind the penis is actually symbolic of assertive, male energy: “standing up” for yourself and being “firm” in your resolve. For the penis to be bitten may indicate you are feeling challenged in that area. Is someone trying to have power over you or emasculate you?

Less often, snakes can represent a man’s virility. Are you having an issue in the bedroom or in trying to get your girlfriend pregnant?

Whatever the case, it seems this issue is more of a concern now for you than it is for her. The dreams show us that there is an underlying issue in your relationship that has the potential to become harmful if not dealt with correctly. 

I hope this was helpful to you!

Response from dreamer: I appreciate the quick response! This provides a good deal of insight to me and her. Thanks so much.
