Analysis : šagaz is light and hope. However, earthly glories and the sun, heavenly power, is what the day brings together, bringing the more abstract light and power and applying it to our everyday lives. The shape of the rune itself denotes this kind of interconnection. It is reminiscent of gebo, with its balance of masculine, feminine and the four elements, but šagaz makes further connections to the celestial and the realm of nature. It symbolizes harmony with one's environment. but again takes it a step further, implying a harmonious relationship with the spiritual environment . As well, It is a bringing together of all six cardinal points - the four compass directions, the celestial realm above us where the Gods are thought to dwell; and that which is below - all the spirits of the earth and of nature. All of these things are balanced and integrated through šagaz and brought into our daily lives.

The Rune Poem: Verse XXIV Dagaz
Day is Odin's messenger, dear to men,
The Ruler's glorious light,
Mirth and hope to prosperous and poor,
Useful to all.
