Mom grabs snake - dream interpretation

These dreams of snakes helped prepare the dreamer emotionally for the death of her grandmother. She feared being bitten by the bad news which she knew was coming soon.

THE DREAM This is my third snake dream in the last week. I always make note of the colour. This snake was black. I was outside and my mom (who is deceased) grabbed a hold of it, as it was coming my way. It still bit me on my right middle finger. I had to go to the hospital because the venom was lethal. However it was a small bite (like a paper cut) and I didn't feel unwell. Why all these recurrent snake dreams? This was the first one where I was bit.

THE REALITY This snake dreams could have linked to the death of the dreamers grandmother. They coincided in the run up to her death

THE INTERPRETATION Often snakes link to something that could strike at any time(just in the way a snake can come up and bite you unawares). Its quite possible that the two are connected. It certainly the most feasible explanation. However the dreamer was in a mood the previous week and was a bit snappy. In such a case there are two possible explanations yet the most likely is the concern over her grandmother.

The need to go to the hospital may have been literal. If someone is ill and about to die we try to be with them towards the end. However, if the death is a slow and lingering death then maybe its a difficult decision. Each day the dreamer is asking if "this is my grandmothers last day". If someone is about to die we may try to make a special effort. But its impractical to visit the hospital every moment of every day so its often difficult to judge when to visit or not.
