The triquetra symbol itself dates as early as the eighth century on carved stones in northern Europe.
The symbol represents the threefold nature of the Goddess as virgin, mother and crone. It has been found on runestones in northern Europe, and upon early Scandinavian coins. It presumably had pagan religious meaning, that become adopted by Christianity as symbolic with The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit.
The triquetra symbol is found on scores of ouija boards not associated with William Fuld / Parker Brothers. The example shown on the left is made of real wood, however most modern boards use a pressed wood, particle board, or paper covered cardboard.
John Paul Jones' symbol (circle over three interlocking ovals) was found in a book of runes and purportedly represents a person who is both confident and competent. It also mysteriously appears on the cover of a book about the Rosicrucians. I take a much closer look at Led Zeppelin in my book, but it is commonly thought that Jimmy Page was a member of occult practices
Here we see a ZOdiac Board but no symbols, this board came out in the twenties.
Here we see a board advertised on a the internet as an animatronic board that actually moves by itself! Is it coincidental that 2 scary looking "Zozos" or Blackbirds are rising from the corners of this unique spirit board? How does it move by itself? Why are these blackbirds built into the board? Why were jars of preserved blackbirds found next to the strange double sided ZoZo Board?Many cultures believe the Crow or Raven is a symbol of death, and bad omens.
The bird is even mentioned in the Bible; plucking out the eyes of sinners in Proverbs 30:17 and descending upon the wicked in Isaiah 34:11.Many religions, including that of Christianity, believed that these blackbirds were symbols of damnation. In alot of instances they were even associated with the ultimate sinner; that of Lucifer himself. Still others thought that the birds were the result of the casting of a witch's spell.
In mythology, it wasn't unusual for the gods to take the form of a raven or crow in order to fly down to earth and mix among their people.
Here a blackbird seems to be melting next to a flame emanating from a Ouija Board. Was this artist channeling information from beyond? Why all the connections between blackbirds and "talking boards?"
Other cultures considered these blackbirds to be symbols of sexual prowess or even deviancy. They believed that the birds had the power to turn even the best man into a sinner who would commit adultery or other acts of sexual deviance.
