and altogether lose sight of it, it foretells that you will soon
imagine you are being disobeyed and slighted, and things will go on

to a normal basis, and by the putting aside of imaginary trouble,
and masterfully shouldering duties, you will be contented and repaid.

Completely agree! Snakes are the symbol of betrayal! I only had dreamt with a snake once. It was very lucid dream and I was about to endure a very drastic change in my live. I saw this snake on the floor next to the side of the bed I was sleeping on, the snake spat a folded note at me. I grabbed it, the note was neatly folded, opened it and read it: it said only one word "BETRAYAL". This dream was so real! Indeed the message of the snake came true when my ex betrayed me by leaving me for another and returning to our native country. In addition, he left me homeless and with four small children two years later after having this dream.
