Snake chasing me - dream analysis

Try not to concentrate on the symbols in a dream but see what is happening. Being chased by a snake recreates the simple emotion "I feel a sense of threat and danger." In real life this could link to the dreamers fiancée looking at another woman the day before.

THE DREAM - I was standing in the front of my house (I suppose) talking with my sister when she pointed out that there was a big rattlesnake lying there in the grass. It was like 12 ft long, more like an anaconda. She said it was dead, that's when I realized it was moving. The snake chased us throughout the rest of the dream, into the house and throughout. The house was very large (upstairs and down) and I was running through it closing doors trying to keep us all safe. I never saw anyone else in my dream except my sister but I was trying to protect my family (my children). I don't remember how the dream ended except I do know I did not kill the snake!

GUESSWORK The previous day the dreamer had seen her fiancée checking another girl. Whenever, she has tried to confront him it has started a huge fight. The dreamers previous boyfriend has cheated and she tends to have huge trust issues. She feels like everyone is trying to deceive me in some way. After he had checked this girl out he kept telling the dreamer how much he loved her and how much she was the one.

ASSOCIATIONS AND SYMBOLIC MEANINGS
1. Snakes can represent any negative feelings. In this case they associate with the dreamers worries about her fiancée cheating - deception.
2. If the snake is dead then this shows that these negative feelings are gone and dealt with. But the snake is alive so it represents the ever present threat and worries about her fiancée. His reassurances have not put her mind at rest

DREAM ANALYSIS In guesswork the dream was linked to the dreamers fiancée. Its easy to see how the dream deals with the following themes:
- Feelings of deception
- A feeling that something bad is not over

If you weave together the different themes then you find that the dream could easily capture this following feeling - "I saw him checking another girl out. That night he seemed as if he was totally committed to me but I still have these trust issues."

See how the dream mirrors reality in a very abstract way. The snake is a symbol for all the negative trust issues. The snake never seems to go away which mirrors the real life situation as her trust issues never go away.
