I often have dreams about snakes. Usually someone is throwing handfuls of snakes at me. However, in my most recent dream about snakes, I was handed two snakes that wrapped themselves around my pointer finger and began to (what I assumed to be) make love. Once they finished I shook them off my finger and when they hit the ground they were just black worms, not snakes. I need help translating this. I do feel as if I am a conscious & transitory period in life, embarking on new exciting things.
Snakes are symbolic for Kundalini, the kundalini serpent that lies asleep within the root chakra until we shake it awake and it rises to the crown linking the ida and pingala as one. Snakes are a deep symbol for transformation, rebirth, wisdom and renewal. They elicit positive change as they bring with them power to the subconscious by helping awakening our minds.
What you’re describing sounds like the Ouroboros
Snakes eatting it’s own tail. It is the symbol for infinity and rebirth. Life death rebirth. Reality is an neverending cycle.
It is also the symbol of the double torus. The double torus is the result of two opposing forces reaching equilibrium thereby forming a recursive feedback loop which is the same concept.
“The alchemists, who in their own way knew more about the nature of the individuation process than we moderns do, expressed this paradox through the symbol of the Ouroboros, the snake that eats its own tail. The Ouroboros has been said to have a meaning of infinity or wholeness. In the age-old image of the Ouroboros lies the thought of devouring oneself and turning oneself into a circulatory process, for it was clear to the more astute alchemists that the prima materia of the art was man himself. The Ouroboros is a dramatic symbol for the integration and assimilation of the opposite, i.e. of the shadow. This ‘feed-back’ process is at the same time a symbol of immortality, since it is said of the Ouroboros that he slays himself and brings himself to life, fertilizes himself and gives birth to himself. He symbolizes the One, who proceeds from the clash of opposites, and he therefore constitutes the secret of the prima materia which […] unquestionably stems from man’s unconscious.”
The fact that they turned into worms is interesting though however Black is the symbol for death(transformation), protection and the unconscious. Add that with the earthworm descript you have:
To see an earthworm in your dream indicates that you need to go deep into your subconscious in order to unearth your hidden feelings and desires. Alternatively, earthworms symbolize little things that can be beneficial for your growth and well-being. It also represents renewal. Perhaps you need to restore some aspect of yourself.
So it sounds like even intuitively you know that you are going through a deep transformation within your waking life and your dreams are showing you this message as well.
much love <3
