Alford's Occult Crimes Investigations "Signs and Symbols of Occult/Devil Worship" list also includes a sigil that looks like the word "ZOSO" with the interpretation: "Demon: 3 headed dog that guards gates to hell." "ZOSO" has been popping up in various so-called manuals on "occult related crime" for years. It is usually defined in these manuals as: "ZOSO: The three headed dog that guards the gates of Hell."
Medieval magicians believed that each spirit had a seal or sigil which identified it or which was related to it. This was probably because it was customary for people to use seals of distinctive designs to seal letters as a form of signature in those days. The argument seems to have been that if people had them, spirits must have them too. "Zoso" is a sigil which is related to the planet Saturn. In modern times you will find it on the album covers and record labels of the British rock group "Led Zeppelin." A good example, can be found on the dust cover of the album "Led Zeppelin IV".
Jimmy Page was the lead guitarist of Led Zepplin. Page is a serious student of occult subjects and bought Aleister Crowley's old house in London, which he turned into a metaphysical book store. Page chose this sigil because Saturn is related to the metal lead, relating in turn to the name of this group. He chose several other symbols for the Led Zepplin IV album, an example being the inside cover, which is a reproduction of "The Hermit" card of the Major Arcana of a Tarot deck. "Zoso" later became the name of the Led Zepplin Fan Club, based in San Francisco.
"The demon that guards the gate of hell has the mark of ZoSo on his forehead."

Zoso is not a word but rather, a symbol. The original symbol was used by Cardano in 1557, which he used as the magickal sigil for saturn, the planet that rules capricorn, Jimmy Page's Sign. Jimmy took this sybol and changed parts of it. The true meaning is one only known to him. In short it is an adapted occult symbol..
It is not a word. Therfore an example is pretty damn impossible..

Jimmy Page's personal sign for the 4th Led Zeppelin album. The album took 4 symbols, one from each member of the band, that they thought best represented them. Page says that he is not a Satanist, and that the symbol has nothing to do with anything unGodly. Yet its meaning is not fully understood by anyone except the master guitarist.
One of the greatest guitarists in the world's symbol, ZoSo. Jimmy Page is not a wanker, o)O picasso

The Zoso symbol first introduced by Jimmy Page on the untitled fourth Led Zeppelin album, was lifted largely from Austin Osman Spare's "Zos" drawing. A likely interpretation of Spare's Zos idea had to do with two concepts, relating to the life force in us all, and also the animal or beast side of us all as well. In addition, Aleister Crowley also has a "So is O" concept, found in his book Equinox of the Gods. It is another expression for self-identification with the "beast". Also, if you say "So is O" fast enough it sounds almost identical to saying Zoso. Crowley and Spare knew each other, so certainly there is a connection here, and Page was clever enough to combine the two concepts (which are actually the same in essence) into his one Zoso symbol!
Zoso is not actually a word, but a symbol. But then again, aren't words just symbols of something else anyway? We have given Webster way too much power...

Zoso is Jimmy Page's symbol it isn't Evil or anything, it's representing his star sign, he's a capricorn(his birthday is 9 Jan), in the the tarot the devil card is one of the cards for Capricorn (not saying that Capricorn is evil or anything). Zoso also symbolises Saturn, as Capricorn is ruled by Saturn. So it is not worship for the devil, just his star sign. Jimmy was interested in astrology and the tarot, which is why he chose ZoSo to be his symbol
Z= Capricorn oSo=Saturn = Zoso
