Question Question on Dream Symbolism

So I had a dream about two snakes devouring each other's tails. I'm trying to find the symbolism for it but it's not the ouroboros, which is only one snake devouring its own tail. Does anyone know?

Well I'm by far not an expert but aren't the majority of snake symbols ether eastern (such as india) or Meditaranian or Latin American? lol

I haven't heard of any symbols like it in any thing I've read on native americans or latin americans.

I know the greek symbols got them wraped up together, and I'm pretty sure the alchemy one is just one snake...

I asked some friends and they said that theirs a yoga concept which is sometimes represented with 2 snakes coiled together like that called Kundalini. Maybe you can look into that and some of the Indian Concepts?

I just googled on dream symbols...here's what I found you might want to try a more in depth search online.

Snake
To see a snake or be bitten by one in your dream, signifies hidden fears and worries that are threatening you. Your dream may be alerting you to something in your waking life that you are not aware of or that has not yet surfaced. The snake may also be seen as phallic and thus symbolize dangerous and forbidden sexuality. The snake may also refer to a person around you who is callous, ruthless, and can't be trusted. As a positive symbol, snakes represent transformation, knowledge and wisdom. It is indicative of self-renewal and positive changes.

Serpent
To see a serpent in your dream, signifies high intellectual power, deception, and the balance of good and evil.
To see a winged serpent in your dream, denotes wisdom and that you've overcome negative ways. TOP



Reptile
To see a reptile in your dream, symbolizes your basic urges, instinctual nature or suppressed sexual desires. TOP

Default Hm, Interesting

Interesting, thanks Maureen! I wasn't really thinking of the snake itself but was concentrating on the symbol of them devouring each other's tails because I've heard of that symbol somewhere before (and more than just as the Auryn in Neverending Story)

Brandon: I'm glad both of you are doing well. I have applied to 13 jobs and haven't gotten one yet...it's kind of depressing but I'm babysitting tomorrow which should at least be gas in my tank.

Talking Sorry

I obviously haven't been on here in a long time. Thanks everyone for the help! I'll definitely talk to Jordan about making dream symbolism a topic.
