Snakes are understood as one of oldest, yet powerfully enigmatic dream symbols that brings both warnings and transformation to the dreamer.
The color of the snake however helps provide the dreamer with a clue that usually points to a hidden energy within that is up for renewal — the specific color metaphorically manifest towards the dreamers unconscious emotional state.
Often times colorful snakes are commonly known to show up predicting a potential threat or enemy in your walling life. Other times they tend to appear to mirror some sort of inner transformation, or relate to the unknown part of your personality that could be linked to your chakra system.
