Dagaz: The Rune of Transformation GemShoppy December 13, 2014 Symbols Dagaz is the rune of the fresh day. It is the joyful start, the new beginning, the dawn which marks the first day of the rest of your life. Dagaz suggests the dawning of breakthrough, awareness and awakening. It promises that clarity will light up the subject’s life and says that now is the time to embark on a new enterprise. When Dagaz is drawn up, the subject is being told that using one’s will can bring about desired change. It talks of security and certainty, growth and release. It brings a positive outcome to any situation. Dagaz is the essence of natural daylight, the new light of dawn, and the strength of the sun. Spiritually, it is the divine light, the high point of the natural cycle of darkness-light-darkness. It signifies brightness, growth, progress, development, and sometimes fundamental change. The divine light is guiding you towards your goal. Remain true, and good fortune will be with you. You are well protected by the power of the light. It will give you clear vision to avoid dangers, but don’t be blinded by your ego. Remain humble and thankful for all the good things that come to you. Dagaz references the most basic of all cycles: Night and Day. This powerful rune is a reminder of the cyclical nature of all things. What rises must fall. What increases must decrease. All things are interconnected and in a state of constant flux. Dagaz is the rune of awakening — new worlds, new possibilities and new opportunities arise as others fade away. Day and night are in perfect proportion. There is balance in all things, celestial and material. Night has passed and a new day is beginning. This very positive rune signifies a well-led life, an individual who is happy with themselves and their position in life. Balance has been achieved. Positive, good forces will be at work very shortly, because expectations have been managed and risks properly assessed. Balance and harmony reign supreme — events will soon take a turn for the better. One has already crossed through a place of darkness and now a new day dawns. Major transformation either spiritual or material, is occurring as the first light of a new day breaks over the horizon. Possibilities are everywhere. If success in a matter has been at hand for a long period of time, Dagaz may indicate a change to that cycle — a new day which brings with it fundamental shift to underlying expectations. More literal references here can also be to a time of day (the early morning), and to new business endeavors, new relationships and new pursuits. Dagaz rune also represents the connection of the four elements and the connection with the celestial and natural realms.
