Commonly called ‘ZoSo’, there is no actual pronunciation of the symbol. Jones recalls that Page once told him it “was something to do with Saturday.” It originally came from a 1557 document, Ars Magica Atreficii by Jerome Cardan. But wasn’t published until 1844 in Le Triple Vocabulaire Infernal Manuel du Demonomane, by Frinellan.
It has also been claimed the symbol is a sign for Saturn (Z) and 666 (oSo).
But in reality, it is most likely Page intended for it to be interpreted as a signification of his birth sign (Capricorn/Saturn) and interest into the occult. As said by Crowley, “…he should have quintessentialized them into one Word, which last word, once he has formed it, he should never utter consciously even in thought…” And as said by Page, “My symbol was about invoking and being invocative. And that’s all I’m going to say about it.” The symbol can be seen onstage on his Dragon suit pants and his Marshall amplifiers from 1971-1977.
John Paul Jones:
Jonesy chose his symbol out of a 1930 book entitled The Book of Signs by Rudolf Koch. Jones remembers, “Page showed us the book, and said we could each choose a symbol. So Bonzo and I did this, though later we discovered JImmy and Robert had gone off and had their symbols specially designed, which was typical.” In the book itself, the caption says, “Two signs used to exorcise evil spirits. In the case of both these signs, as with the pentagram and the octogram, it is worthy of note that they call for a certain dexterity, and that a clumsy person would be unable to draw them.” It’s also worth noting this is a Celtic design. His symbol can be seen onstage on his keyboards during the 1971-1972 tours.
As stated above, this is out of the same book but previous page as John Paul Jones’ symbol. There is no meaning behind it apart from the fact Bonzo just liked it. Yet Plant has said that is symbolizes the “man-woman-child trilogy”. Bonham put the symbol on his bass drum from 1971-1975.
Plant says the symbol he created was drawn from sacred symbols of the ancient Mu civilization. It was first seen in Ancient Egypt as the feather of Ma’at, the Egyptian goddess of justice and fairness. It’s is also the symbol of a writer.
