Wild side and spiritual nature
A snake, of course, is a wild animal that man can tame but will never end up as a companion like a dog or a cat. Dreams about snakes can therefore represent the wild and untamed side of you, the passions that can go against cultural and societal expectations. As such, the snake can be an intimidating and uncomfortable dream symbol because it can reveal desires within you that you would not be able to admit into your life.
Like the root of the Kundalini, the snake is a symbol of your spiritual nature, which can also be a facet of you, especially if you have made a habit of living life superficially by failing to take into account your spiritual needs or deep desires.
