11 Spiritual Meanings of Black Snakes in Dreams: It’s Bad Luck?

Snakes generally are animals that breed fear in a lot of people.

Take me for example, if I happen to hear a rumor that a snake was sighted north of my house, I‘d restrict all my movements away from that area.

This however doesn’t mean I don’t have my fair share of encounters with snakes from the green snake to cobra, to rattlesnake to black snakes, etc. 

However, the black snake is the one that’s in the purview of this article.

Black snakes are one of the deadliest snakes in the world.

They are feared by almost everyone.

Because of this, a lot of us have dreaded dreams of black snakes. It is important to not just shut off our minds from having this type of dream.

Dreaming of black snakes can happen to us.

This does not have anything to do with our fear of snakes. Such a dream implies something we are either not doing right or not doing at all.

Therefore, it is important to understand why the black snake comes to us in our dreams. 

Dreams are a powerful tool of communication. But people have become so familiar with dreams. They have failed to realize the importance of their dreams, they do so at their peril. 

I advise that you pay attention to this article. 

What does a Black Snake Mean Spiritually?

Black snakes in spiritual world

There are a few major things to consider before ascertaining what a black snake means spiritually

The first thing is that you and I, and several people most likely associate the color black with evil, darkness, and all sorts of vile things

In the story of Adam and Eve in the bible, the snake was used as an allegory for the devil. I won’t be surprised if people thought that, the snake was a black snake. 

Ever since this snake has been closely associated with the presence of satan or wicked spirits.

Spiritually, this is one of the meanings of seeing this snake.

It indicates that an evil spirit is around you. 

In addition to that, seeing a black snake signifies caution.

For example, if you are about to leave your home and a black snake runs across your path, it could be a warning sign from the spiritual world. This type of sign is always given when danger lies ahead of us.  

Taking note of a sign like that can protect us from falling victim to mishaps, accidents, mistakes, and other unfortunate situations

What does it mean when You Dream of Black Snakes?

Dreaming about black snakes is an attempt of the spiritual realm to caution you against making certain mistakes.

Either you’re about to make those mistakes or you’ve made them already. 

Another spiritual meaning of having such an encounter points to carelessness.

If you were to become careless with your life, treating serious matters with nonchalance.

  • You might begin to see black snakes in your dreams.
  • You might even be bitten by the snake in the dream, such that you’d wake up feeling pain at that spot.  
  • You should not take the presence of this snake in your dream for granted.

In these general spiritual meanings, you can get several specific and individual messages, which I will elucidate on later on.

I know you’re probably thinking ‘why is this even a sub-topic?’ seeing it looks like all that the black snake signifies is evil, evil, and more evil.

However, there are times you will get a black snake of mixed colors. In this case, could it also be a bad sign?  

Well, there are 3 different colors we will look into as we explore the meaning of the omen of this snake in your dream. 

Black and White Snake:

Contrary to what you might think, this snake is not an omen of bad luck.

It simply comes in the dreams to reveal the inner battles one faces.

The tussle between good and evil, right and wrong. 

It speaks of the darkness of your past trying to overshadow the light in the present. 

  • If the black color is more than the white, then, it is a warning sign that you’re beginning to give in to condemnation from your past.
  • If the white is more than the black, then, that is a form of encouragement to fight harder. It shows that you’re winning the battle and getting ready to move on with your life. 

Black and Yellow Snake:

It opens your mind to the fact that problems in your life should not linger for long.

It’s a signal for you to pay attention to the creative abilities within you to bring you out of any situation you might find yourself in.

The ability to proffer solutions to those problems is in you.

Having this type of dream indicates that something bad is about to happen to you. The black and red snake is a sign of the devil.

It comes with a combination of dangerous colors. 

The moment you have this type of dream, ensure you pray more for protection against the attacks of the devil.

Furthermore, check the areas of your life that are vulnerable and seek spiritual help to make those areas stronger. 

If you see this in a dream, you shouldn’t treat it with levity. Rather than get unnecessarily scared, you should see it more as a caution
