Snake-dreams are unlucky, and signify injuries by enemies, scandal, unkind gossip, and falseness on the part of those who have hitherto posed as friends.From among the many snake-dreams I have heard and recollect, I select the following, as examples.A lady, who had formed a great friendship with a woman with a peculiar cast in her eyes (a disfigurement which, in my opinion, frequently points to deceit), once dreamed she was walking in her garden, when out of a rose glided an enormous green snake. Greatly alarmed, she was on the verge of running away to solicit help to kill the brute, when she saw, to her amazement, that it had human eyes, and, on bending down to examine it more closely, she found herself looking into the countenance of her woman friend. Hair, features and complexion were exactly similar, but the expression was different: it was an expression of the utmost craftiness and malice, of which she had never for one moment thought her friend capable. She awoke much impressed, and, before the day was out, learned that this very friend had done her the greatest possible injury by betraying a secret of the utmost consequence.My second illustration is the experience of a man who dreamed he was groping about on the rockery in his garden, when he found, to his horror, a nest of brown snakes that rose on end and hissed at him. He tried to draw back, but found himself wedged in by a well that had in some mysterious fashion, only to be met with in dreams, suddenly sprung up behind him. Every avenue of escape was closed, and wherever he looked he saw snakes the wall and the rockery were covered with them. Overcome with terror, he forced himself to wake, and rather than go to sleep again, and risk a continuation or repetition of his dream, he lit the gas and read till morning.The dreamer, shortly afterwards, sustained a pecuniary loss through an act of treachery.
