Dagaz means day, and in the Nordic lands of long nights and winters, the day is strongly associated with light and life. 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.

Personal Interpretation
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

Reverse
Dagaz has no reverse.

Converse
A false dawn. The time is not right for change. The daylight is yet to come. Persevere and trust in your strength and ability.
