Dagaz is aligned with the Day.  In the
light of day all is revealed.  It is when the light
pierces the darkness that the searcher’s path
is illuminated.   The Latin Phrase “Carpe
Diem” (seize the day) is an excellent comment
on how Dagaz energy should be used.  Each
day is a new beginning, each morning a new
start.  Using each day to it’s maximum
potential is part of the message of Dagaz.

Special Runic Associations:  Dagaz is the final Rune in the Cycle of
Initiation.  This is the culmination of the path begun with Ansuz
(Signals/Messenger Rune).  Now the breakthrough has occurred and your
journey forward continues. It is no misnomer that this Runic Cycle of Initiation
is called a Cycle.  When we complete the cycle and break through to our new
future, we are also breaking through to a new dimension within ourselves.
Dagaz also tells us of the movement and breakthrough in ways of thinking or
being.  It only takes a second to change someone for a lifetime.  That applies
to ourselves too.  High ideals are normally associated with Dagaz.  You are
strengthened with your ambition and desire to achieve a higher goal (whether it
be emotional, spiritual or physical).  It is in the light of day that we do a lot of
the work that makes our dreams happen.  Dagaz challenges you to achieve,
grow and break through the the barriers of the past to embrace the new future
you have designed.
Dagaz may be here to tell you that all the effort and work you have put into a
project (physical) or effort (spiritual) is coming to fruition.  You may not be able
to see the end of the line, but at least you know that the light you see is true
daylight…not the light of an on-coming freight train!  Success is soon to be
realized as long as you cling to your path.  

Breaking through brings change to both the inner and outer self.  If Dagaz has
appeared in your casting be sure to look at the Runes which fall near it…they
can give you more information as to what aspect of your life Dagaz is getting
ready to bring into the light.  Remember that spiritual enlightenment is also a
way of bringing light into your life.  

Dagaz - Breakthrough

Dagaz is a member of Tyr’s Aett

Key Word(s):  Breakthrough, day, daylight, transformation, prosperity.

Element:  Dagaz is aligned with both the elements of air and fire.  Remember,
without air fire can’t burn.  Fire, through its transmutive properties changes the
very chemical composition of the air.
Bluntly, you may not understand why you are being pulled in a
certain direction, only that you know, deep in your heart that you
need to go there.   Dagaz encourages you to let go and follow the
call and see where the path goes.  There are turns in the path, so
of course the final result cannot be seen – but it can be dreamed!

Dagaz talks about the movement of being released from a
quagmire.  The sudden release of energies may well propel you
forward in an unsteady stumble.  Keep your balance, use your
instincts, and embark on the new process you have chosen.
