I talked a little about last week’s rune yesterday, so today we’ll just look at this week’s rune. As usual, the question was “What do I need to focus on this week?”
Dagaz: Day – rising sun, new day, deliverance
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. – The Anglo Saxon Rune Poem
This is a rune of a bright future, of good hope and promising things to come. It’s certainly a pleasant rune, and one that has a lot of promise to it.
Also, in Dangler’s Very Basics of Runes, he speaks of a sort of divine intervention aspect to this rune, that the blessings it brings are “heaven sent” (53).
I am not sure how this rune will apply this week. Hopefully some aspect of my life will experience a little “redawning” or turning over of a new leaf. Perhaps I’ll have some new clarity on my path in ADF, or some new insights into the relationship I’m developing with the spirit who has been visiting in my meditations? Perhaps this is a runic nudge to “count my blessings”? Or perhaps I’m just due for a few good things to come my way. I find this to be a hopeful rune, if not one that I can immediately place into a situation that’s currently going on in my life. I look forward to seeing how it pans out this week.
