I am personally not a fan of snakes. When I have dreams about snakes I freak out regardless of what they might be doing in my dream. I know there are snake lovers out there, so I hold no judgment and actually respect the fact that you can hold a snake without screaming as I would. Definitely not my thing. I do, however, agree snakes have a very important meaning within our dreams.
Most dreams about snakes represent the subconscious mind sending a message that a situation or person you are around or involved with is pretty toxic. Although this is most of the cases, it could also represent healing or shedding the skin of your old self.
If you have another meaning for a snake put it in the comments below!
