Dagaz best translates into “awakening".

The Dagaz is good for you when you seek to be awakened from a lack of vision and hopelessness.

Take this rune if you need a big realization in your life that propels you to making big and bold changes in your life. Maybe your needs have been placed on the backburner because you’re so busy attending to other people’s needs. Maybe you’ve spent most of your life caring for your children and now that they are adults, you are feeling lost. The Dagaz will awaken you to your main purpose in this world. The Dagaz reminds you that darkness is not the absence of light, but is the quality of life.
