This is the rune of growth and increase. There are no negative aspects to this rune. If Daeg is surrounded by negative runes, it shows an inner strength that can be used during difficult times. This rune counteracts against delay runes. It shows slow and steady growth and progress. Daeg is the dawning of a new day full of hope and optimism. This rune could indicate a major change in your life (one for the better). With Mannaz, it could mean that things will get better through the help of others. It is possible that this rune is describing the entrance of enlightenment into your life. Shown with Wunjo Reversed, Othel Reversed or Hagall, this rune indicates that you are drawing problems towards yourself by dwelling on them. Keeping a good attitude can enhance your situation a great deal.
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.
