Serpent

Serpents are one of the oldest figures that have a lot of symbolism. In general, they are associated with phalluses and pagan gods of fertility. Given that snakes live sliding across the ground, they are an emblem of caution of the land and of the dangers that guard the underground world. From a Christian perspective, they are a dark and sinful symbol that tempts men to gain knowledge. On the other hand, these animals could be your hidden fears or the start of a period of internal and external conflicts. In this last case, you will have to suffer unpleasant experiences. However, at the end you will gain wisdom that you would otherwise have been unable to reach in such a small period of time. If you fall in a pit full of snakes, the dream represents the worries that are threatening you. Snakes, lastly, sometimes symbolize venomous words and insinuations from the people around you. In the representation of the god Mercury (the symbol of the medical profession now) there appear interlaced snakes. For the Greeks, snakes had curative properties. In a similar manner, in India, the cobra is a divine figure of illumination and is associated with the god Shiva.
