Dagaz, the last rune of Futhark means literally "Day". This rune symbolizes the fulfillment and achievement. Dagaz is the rune of the awakening, of dawn and of the day rise. The rebirth in the Light. Dagaz also symbolizes the fulfillment at the end of the initiatory path.

Its geometrical shape also symbolizes the balance between negative and positive polarities, the harmony, union of both extremes, and particularly the balance between the Light and the Darkness. Rune of alchemy and of Transmutation, Dagaz is the balance of the opposite energies. It is also the rune of the paradox and of the ambiguity, that's why it can be used to block certain processes.
