Dagaz equates to the letters "D" in our common alphabet.

The meaning of the Dagaz Rune is that of Day. Spiritual growth, development and change is associated with the Dagaz Rune, seeing the light and radical change. Dagaz is also a rune of  transformations. What goes up must come down. What increases must decrease. Life is about balance and within the cycles of night and day; we find experience that contributes to increase our understanding with a greater whole. It is thru dagaz that we can overcome the darkness in our lives. Dagaz can be the statement “we are all one,” and this is meant not in some abstract sense but at the deepest level of existence. Duality, or separation between the observer and the observed, is an illusion that thru dagaz can be recognized.

From the historical rune poems about Dagaz we get:
The Anglo-Saxon rune poem translated says: "Day, the glorious light of the Creator, is sent by the Lord; it is beloved of men, a source of hope and happiness to rich and poor, and of service to all."

Dagaz is the rune of transformation, giving clear vision and protection by maintaining balance.
Keywords: awakening, awareness, twilight, dawn, dusk, polarity, unity, transmutation, aurora,
breakthrough, enlightenment, day.
