What does a dream about a snake hint to?

17.12.15

Question

Shalom Rabbi. I saw your answer that dreams about snakes are conveying something about one’s livelihood and happiness. My question is: Is it just about one’s livelihood? Or let’s say, if I have something more important to me than my livelihood, then does a snake appear for that too?

Answer

As far as I know, it implies only that one will obtain his livelihood. Just like a snake finds its food in the dirt and therefore his food is available for him everywhere (Tractate Brachot 57a, and see Rashi’s explanation there).
