The following is a teaser sampling of my next book, which is about the infamous Zodiac killer

As an aside to Zodiac material I have been compiling ;
I thought the quartered circle may have spoken to Arthur Leigh Allen in another way.
Yes, the Zodiac watch, his mother had given him for Christmas likely inspired the name he chose to identify himself. Its cross-hair like symbol suggesting a hunter killer message .

The basic symbol is quite ancient. It goes by many names. Perhaps somewhere within these names, He found messages which spoke to him of his own destiny?
I would like to explore that possibility, by presenting the following thoughts to you for consideration.
He may have viewed the symbol as resembling Wodens Cross.
Woden was the leader of the Wild Hunt. He was a Psychopomps (from the Greek word ψυχοπομπός, psychopompůs, literally meaning the "guide of souls". Creatures, spirits, angels, or deities in many religions whose responsibility is to escort newly deceased souls from Earth to the afterlife. Their role is not to judge the deceased, but simply to guide them. Appearing frequently on funerary art, psychopomps have been depicted at different times and in different cultures as anthropomorphic entities, horses, deer, dogs, whip-poor-wills, ravens, crows, owls, sparrows and cuckoos. When seen near homes.
Now, to my mind, this is also a continued link to both the Lord High Executioner and the Tit Willow as well.
The difference being that Arthur Leigh Allen 'Did 'judge his victims, in the extreme.
Two additional names for the Quartered Circle are as below;

The Quartered Circle, Circled Cross;
Those letters remix to reveal the following:

WN = Warning Notice.

Consparsa is Latin, meaning cleanse.
Cleanse can also mean to kill/ eradicate, as in ethnic cleansing.

The hidden message says,

Warning Notice , Leigh does kill.
Odins Pagan Wheel is also associated with
That remixed says; BEFIT ***.

Befit meaning appropriate or suitable for.
So in the mind of the Zodiac killer, these girls deserved to die at his hand.

Then too, there is the connection of the bow and arrow to the hunter Sagittarius. The astrological sign Arthur Leigh Allen was born under.

Jack the Ripper gets all the love here in this brotherhood of loving and supportive magicians.

The silence, at least is better than previous put downs over the use of anagrams

No more soup for you !

I think Jack is more popular due to the romanticized period (an the over the top violence)
The Zodiac is intriguing with the cyphers and taunting
best wishes with the work

I think the cyphers are great. I just wish I could do them, but alas, it is not within my mental ability to put the broken pieces of the puzzle together; it is a gift that you have and I admire that in your work.

Dear Readers,

I got my nose into Kotah's Zodiac 340 book last weekend. The Zodiac killer was not on my radar, so it was particularly interesting to me to read the history. I found the Zodiac 340 very engaging; I was completely mesmerised by the alternative storyline that Kotah as lain out. This short, and very affordable, book was worth spending a couple hours being entertained and engrossed in. Yes, I may be a bit biased, as I really like Kotah's work, as shall become even more clear, at some later date. It gets Yitzhak's stamp of approval. Very much recommended.
