Masonic Dot Codes and The Zodiac Killer

                                                              This page is part of

                                                  The Masonic Dot Code and The Zodiac
                                             This blog is my online notebook.

             If you came across this post by accident i ask that you look at the rest of my work.


            Solving the Zodiac codes all revolved around dots. The first step in the Zodiac "My Name is Cipher" is to guess the hint and decipher the phrase "Conect the dots". Connect is misspelled on purpose. That in turn leads us to find a name. I can't really talk about that at this time. It is also suggestive of your more common connect the dots puzzles enjoyed by everyone when they were children .  This article is about another group that had codes that revolved around dots. The Free Masons.  I will show you how the Masons used dot codes and show how the Zodiac utilized this same technique in his codes and ciphers. This should be pretty interesting . I will start with the card that came with the 340 cipher and the Masonic "Pig Pen Cipher". This will also take a few sessions to complete. I have two or three important things I am working on so please cut me a little slack if I make a few mistakes here and there. I guess since i started this i might as well finish it and get all my ideas down . Then i will probably forget all about this, disappear from internet, and never be heard from again. I guess only time will tell. I am also in the process of rewriting and polishing up the original post that started all this. I also have a lot more research and discoveries. It will be a while before i can share that stuff , but when the time comes I just want every thing else to be in order. Just bear with me and i promise everyone some really good stuff. At some point i will go back and edit all that out.

                                           The 340 Pen card and the Pig Pen Cipher

      There are a few things on this card I will be pointing out. The first of which is what the card itself says. I just washed my pen/ The very first time i saw this i said " Pig Pen". It wasn't til years later that I realized that actually was the clue. I can't be any more serious when I say all the discoveries that I made all happened by accident and chance.

        Here is the key for the Pig Pen Cipher. Notice how they resemble dice. As in "par-a-dice".

This is just one example of a Masonic dot code , and this one was applied in the 340 cipher. It was key in solving it .  If you have read my other stuff then you already know about the initials JKF repeating.  Look at the Pig Pen key above and look at the letter "J". I want you to remember that when you look at the 340 cipher with dice drawn on it and after the Halloween card "v" symbol has been revealed.We have found  another example of JKF repeating in the Zodiac codes.

 The dots on the 340 cipher reveal a lot more than an homage to the Masonic Pig Pen cipher , but also reveal locations on the Phillips 66 map and give us a message using an overlay key possibly pertaining to one if these locations. It is amazing how these barley noticed markes were the key to it all. 

I am going to talk about the Pig Pen cipher. It is not known exactly where it came from , but it can be tracked back to the 18th century. Free Masons used it commonly to keep there doings hidden away from prying eyes. That is why it is known as the Masonic Cipher. This cipher was also used by  the Rosicrucian brotherhood. Soldiers in early America also used the code and in later years even children learned to use it .

The pig pen cipher is made up of a grid and dots. That is Wikipedias words. These grids and dots are also what the 340 is made of. He had to use a grid overlay just to create the code. Grids have many uses. The 340 grid  hides a pig pen cipher , a hidden Halloween card "v" symbol, and locations on the map. There are a few variants on the pig pen cipher. That means there is more than one way to encode it . All forms involve this grid. The little squares with dots that resemble dice are called pens. Like a pen you would keep a pig in . Here are a few different ways to use a pig pen cipher. These are different keys you can use that will give you a better idea of how it works. There are three ways to make a key for a pig pen.
You would draw out your grids like this. Kind of like a tic tac toe board. Then you write your letters in the gird in some kind of pattern and that creates your key. You then use the key to encode and decode messages.

Here is an example of a three dot key, but the key to it all is the dots.
Here is the key we are interested in. It is one of the most common and it gives us the initials J F as you saw on the 340 code above. 
             Notice how the letter J looks like a dice and the letter F looks like the "v" symbol.
                                                Here is another example of the same key.

This is the same exact key as the one above. It is just made in a little different way. The second letter in each pen or square would have a dot on the code. What makes it important on the 340 code is that it makes us notice the dots and it also gives us more probability on his initials and name.  Here is an example of a pig pen cipher.

Take a crack at it .
If you can't figure it out I may have borrowed a trick from the Zodiac. I promise it does say something.

Let's look at the Pen card again. First i want to point out how he spelled "Thing". It kind of looks like the "v" symbol closed up but you can clearly see the "f" in it, and the "g" is meant to be a "j" in disguise. We found JKF repeating again.  Now look at the 6 dots. There are 6 dots in the 340 cipher. # of these dots even mirror the 3 dots around the "v" symbol in the 340 cipher forming a triangle. 

This triangle may not seem like anything, but it is also a Masonic dot code. 

There are other people who have done this same thing. Rembrandt is one.

Lets Talk about Masonic Symbols for a minute. Masons will hide symbols in just 
about anything they touch. You probably look at a few dozen hidden masonic symbols a day and don't even realize it . First look at this Masonic symbol.

 I have this "connect the dots" theory. If you read my other stuff you can find out more about that. I think this symbol on the Halloween card that Zodiac sent to San Francisco Chronicle Paul Avery is a hint to "connect the dots". I think it is actually a hint to a few things all hidden in one strange symbol. Some think it has a connection with a comic book that I will not get into here , but I also think there could be some kind of connection to that. It is a strong possibility, but I think it could be for other reasons than most think. It is something I pan to study someday when I have time. 

To me the symbol on the Halloween card is an obvious square and compass. I have shown that symbol to random Masons I know who have no knowledge of the Zodiac Killer or where the symbol came from just to see what they would say. They also thought it was an obvious square and compass. The dots form the compass when they are connected and the lower part of the symbol form the square. So now the symbol has given us two hints already.

Square and compass and Connect the Dots. 

Here they are overlayed on one another. 

To me that is the most important symbol the Zodiac gave us. Some have said I pay it too much attention to this symbol and all I can do is laugh in amazement at that thinking. He didn't draw it on the card just to be drawing strange symbols. No offense to anyone but how can you try to solve the Zodiac codes and ignore all the clues he left us? That is like investigating the Zodiac and ignoring all the letters and evidence. 

The image below is form the very first work 
I did when I was trying to figure this stuff out. The dots on the card made me pay attention to the dots on what is called the 340 code. A code that had never been solved. Also written on the card is "Par-a-dice". I took this as another hint to pay attention to the dots and it seemed to me to be a play on word for "Pair of Dice" It may well have other meaning as I believe most of the clues he left have more than one meaning. I believe he left more clues to this but to avoid confusion I am not going to get into them right now. So I drew dice around the dots on the code. Then I saw the strange symbol form the Halloween card embedded in a cluster on dice on the 340 code. They are and exact match as you will see, 

Below is a better example of what you have just seen After seeing what looked very promising I was wondering where do I go from here? I had the map out beside of me. I had already found that one of the bomb drawings sent by the Zodiac is an overlay used with the map to reveal two hidden marked locations. You can find out more about that through links on the main page. I was looking at the squares on the 340 I had drawn when it hit me there is a compass drawn on the map. The same compass used in the overlay with the bomb drawing. THE SQUARE AND COMPASS. So I wondered what would happen if I used the 340 as an overlay with the map. Used it not as a code but a grid. Zodiac  himself even hinted to this when he wrote in one of his letters that the code coupled with the map would tell you where the bomb is set.  I would also like to point out that square highlighted in green beside the compass on the map. That is the ONLY square with a dot inside it on the ENTIRE code. It  is a marker

It is a marker for the overlay.

Lets look at the first picture again. I highlighted the circle and the cross in the sun this time. 
        It is called a sun wheel. The basis of how we keep time was built around it. Think sun dial. I will go into a little detail on this but I am not going to try to give a full blown history lesson or anything. Here is an example of a sun wheel that I pulled off an article about sun wheels.

Here is one I made.

  As I said the basis of how we keep time was built around this and also how we tracked the zodiac. The calender zodiac. Some even call it the zodiac cross for a completely different reason that has nothing to do with the Zodiac killer. The Masons. Here is example of the original Zodiac Cross.
On the map code in my other work which you can find links to on the main page talked about all the lines intersecting over Oakland. I called it the point of origin. I said it was the possible home of the killer because it is actually called the point of origin. That is all. Just a possibility.  On mathematical grids it would be called the point of origin and it just seemed to me that a hidden clue like this is something the Zodiac would do.  As I said before the Masons actually call this symbol the Zodiac Cross.  Here is a screen shot that I pulled off a Masonic internet site. It Is an article about "Free Masonry and the Zodiac Cross, I will attach a link to the article below the screen shot. Notice that this article also talks about the calender zodiac and mentions the POINT OF ORIGIN so you know it is not just a thought that occurred only to me. 

I have looked around and discovered that other zodiac researchers have noticed the
Masonic connection, but for other reasons than I did.. Richard Grinell at has and article about the connection and also shows that the zodiac symbol was a masonic symbol associated with the calender zodiac. Here is a screenshot and below it is a link to the full article he wrote. Richard is a smart fellow and I have gotten to know him since I started this project. I really like him because aside from being a brilliant writer he will listen to people and will not let the differing ideas get in the way of working together. As I have told him before there is a chance that a lot of out differing ideas could both be right but I will not get into that here. Our thinking is more on the same wave length than most may realize. Just the fact him and others noticed a Masonic connection with the Zodiac lends it some validity.

Some think the Zodiac stole his name and symbol from a watch. I think it is more likely the watch company took its name and symbol from the ancients and people like the Masons who used that symbol to help track the Zodiac and keep what we call time. Which is also what a watch is used for.I think the Zodiac was probably aware of this watch and was probably a fan of all things Zodiac(which is more than some think and I am working to show some of these things in other posts)
Is it possible that the owner of the Zodiac watch company was a free mason. That owner of exxon was a mason. That is why there is a double barred cross hidden in the logo. Remember the sun wheel  is also called a Zodiac cross for a completely different reason than because it was used by the zodiac killer or the zodiac watch company. It is possible both the watch company and the killer got their idea from the same place. 

Zodiac is a Swiss made watch. The Swiss flag has a Templar/Masonic cross on it (as does most Swiss made things). It is interesting that some of  the Templars supposedly fled to the mountains and formed what is today called Switzerland. If you notice they do have a lot of connections. Templars were supposed to be some of the worlds first bankers and very secretive. There is a story about that all to itself, but you know...The Swiss are famous for their secretive banking. It is a well known legend or story. Here is a link to a short article about it. 

The watch company symbol and the country's flag are both based from the Templar/Masonic cross. I am going to write the watch company and see if I can get them to ask a few questions I have about their history and the guys who founded them. I think It will shed a little more light on this. I don't know if I will have any luck but I will keep writing and searching until I find the answers I am looking for. I have found the man who started the company. I plan to do more research on him to see what I find. Either way this section will be updated more in the future. 

Below are some things that I am going to post that I will talk more about later. The first is a painting of Christoher Columbus's ships showing a masonic cross on the sails.

 Here is the exxon logo.
That double x in the logo is a hidden masonic double barred cross. I saw a show once
that explained this logo. The blue under it represents the ocean and how the
masons/templars carried the Cross over the ocean. I am trying to show how masons hide
symbols. Showing the importance of the cross and how it applies to the zodiac sea wolf watch.
My main point is to show where the zodiac got his name and symbol from and the masonic
relationship to it.

I ran across this by chance. It is a masonic pin from San Fransisco in 1904. Notice the
crosses and the circle at the center of the big cross. It also make reference to the Templars. I
will talk a little more about the Templars in a minute.
           This one I just wanted to throw at you for fun but you see what i mean about hiding symbols in things.

                                 Slaves in the afterlife. The Zodiac mentioned he was collecting slaves for the after life. Who knows if he really believed this, or if it was just some phase he was going through, or if he was just trying to sound scary to frighten people , or if it was some kind of clue. I did find something that mentions people securing victims as slaves in the afterlife on wkiipedia under the definition of headhunting. Let's see what we can learn about Zodiac by some of the things he says. He might tell us things about himself that he didn't really mean to reveal. Like his level of education and other things. Your average person wouldn't know about a lot of the things he mentioned or talked about. We may be able to use his sense of superiority against him .


                   I saw this and I just had to add it in here . This just blew my mind. Aleister Crowley was a Mason.
                                Here is a screen shot I took . to view the full article click here.

I guess my point is that anyone could be a Mason and still not be such a good guy. I borrowed this picture from John Cecil.

It is the Beetles making a hand symbol like the one the skeleton makes on the Halloween card. 

Here are a few examples of my own just for the fun of it. There is a little more on this hand sign further down the page. If I find any new info on it in the future then I will update it here. Do you know what really bothers me about the Halloween card? It has no makers mark or any kind of identifying mark on it. I would really like to know where the card came from or if the Zodiac had access to the resources to make the card himself?

Their fingers are supposed to represent 666. I can see it . In just a minute you will see something else interesting about this hand sign..It just makes me wonder all the more where this card came from. It is like this card was taylor made just for him.
    Speaking of the Halloween card.  Did you know masonic aprons have an eye and the square on compass on them.

                                                          So does the Hallowen card.
                    The Halloween card has two skeletons on it. I know it is Halloween but there is something else to this.  One one the front and one on the back . Did you know that the skull and cross bones was originally used by the knights Templar back in the days when they escorted christian pilgrims to the holy land. In later years it found it way into masonic traditions. I just did a quick search and took a screen shot to show some examples.

           Another interesting fact about the skeletons on the Halloween card. One is male and one is female.

        This repeats twice on the Halloween card. The masonic symbol of the Square and compass is also called the Blade and Chalice. These are two symbols to represent the opposites of male and female and how they go together.

    I shown in another article how in one of the letters he hid a capricorn symbol and
that the Cheri bates letter was signed with a similar symbol. Here is a screen shot from that. I have no idea what this could mean. It is just something I want to point out.
 This could be a possible hint to a birthday but i don't know. I have already shown the
association between the masons and the zodiac. Here is a screen shot i took from a site that .
here is a link to all the mason/capricorn items for sale. This illustrates just how much into
the zodiac the masons are.

 I want to talk about the stamps the zodiac used. Franklin Roosevelt, Abe Lincoln, The Apollo landing. What do all these Have in common. The masons . When Neil and Buzz landed on the moon the first thing they did was a masonic ritual. Roosevelt was a mason but the made a mistake with Abe. Abe Lincoln was not actually a free mason. He did apply but when he ran for president he withdrew his application because he thought it would be viewed as a trick to get votes. So he withdrew his application with the promise to return after his presidency. After he was shot the lodge he applied with put his application through and declared him to have all the highest honors of a mason.  FYI. The zodiacs name is hidden in this card, and in the exorcist code, and of all places...on the map when you connect the dots.

        The murder at Washinton and Cherry. This could be suggestive of Cheri jo Bates but it is
 another hint to the masons. Every one has heard the story of Washington cutting
down his fathers cherry tree. Washington was also a well known Mason and wore full
masonic garb when the cornerstone for the capital was laid. The night Zodiac committed his murder at Washington and Cherry of the taxi driver he was picked up on MASON street.
 Washington was also known as the Spy Master in the Culper Ring(if you like codes you should check them out ) for his coding and spying skills. One if the lesser known coding systems they used was a technique using overlays to reveal hidden information. One more thing that has nothing to do with this but I want to throw it in here. You never know.  In the 6 page  bomb letter he asked that this part be printed.
This is important for something but i am not sure what. It would be used with one of the
overlay keys i have found but i can tell you this. You will notice 4 numbers in that message.
2-3-5-10 or 23510. That is the zipcode to a naval base at Norfolk Virginia.

It could be nothing but with all the military references in the zodiac case, the wing
walker boots, codes, one of the points falling on a naval war memorial,and the bay area
being a naval town I just thought I would mention it. My brother was in the navy and he has
been to all of these is just something I thought I would mention. It is an odd coincidence but it could be nothing.

Here is the Apollo stamp that Zodiac used on the envelope he mailed the card in. The example on the left was borrowed from Richard Grinell. I am going to do something with it later. 

Apollo 8..In the beginning.


Did you know there is another possible homage to NASA besides the Apollo Stamp. It actually came with the Card inside the envelope this stamp is on. The "666" hand symbol on the card that you saw earlier.

How is that another link to NASA you ask? Well I am glad you asked. I bet some even find that laughable. I know I did at first.  Here is a screen shot and a link that will tell you all about . Could it be a military thing? It was also used commonly by divers. Below the pictures is a link if you want to know more about it . Click on the image to enlarge or just click the link. 
I bet that was something a lot of you didn't know. 
A couple more snips from this site. First is the diving symbol.

This one is really interesting. This card was sent to journalist Paul Avery. Paul Avery called Zodiac a latent homosexual. In South American countries this hand symbol means just that. Could this had been a come back by Zodiac to Paul, or have more than one hidden meaning? It is interesting.

The two keys

Someone said I may have made a mistake on the numbers on these keys, but it is arguable since it is hard to see. So I am going to try to see if i can find out more about this and maybe do a few experiments to try to resolve it . If anyone has any info on the details on the keys please share. I don't think the numbers have any special significance or they would be a little more readable. 
Some variants.

Two keys is another hint to the Masons. Here are a few Masonic Symbols


I just ran across something interesting I am going to add here. 
You see this symbol with the square and dot. I also added it in above so you probably have already seen it. 

You can also see the square overlayed on the compass in the example above. 

Wouldn't it be interesting if a symbol like that was used by a secret society like the Masons.

I just ran across this. 

I had seen this before but never thought about it .. That is all I am going to say for now. I am going to do more research on this symbol. more to come. 

 I don't know a lot about the Rosicrucians. I guess it is time to learn. 

When I don't know about something I like to try to ask around first and get it straight from the horses mouth if I can. I actually surprised they helped me out . 

The stuff beyond this point are things I plan to research and look into. I am listing them out here for future use. I get an idea and just run with it . I work it out as I go along. lol

I found a lot of new stuff I want to research and post about . Right now I am just going to post pictures and links so I don't lose or forget about everything I found and want to cover here. I will then go back and one by one go into more detail on each. This blog is kind of like my online notebook. I ran across just about all of this stuff researching the Bohemian Club. Happy accident. 

Paradice and the Domino. I think this is just a pin and that it may have any special meaning but I don't really know. 

note to self. research masons and dominos. 

The v symbol square and compass

This link is placed here to remind me of something else I am researching. I'll label it stargate. 

Symbols that rule the world (hidden masonic symbols you see everyday) 


a video on the example above(shape shifting)


Another note to self, Research Masonic Police. I just saw something in the news about a group in California calling themselves Masonic Police who were just arrested. The main person in the arrest was an aid to the Governer Kamilla Harris. 

Scottish Rite info and symbols

The rings and the grids

O ran across this researching the Bohemian Club so I am posting a link to remember how I ran across it for future use. 

random thing I need to look into

random thing I need to look into

The infinity 8 ball

Random stuff I need to check out 

reminds me of the 340

Actually ran across this link to in a Bohemian Club search

The Hand Symbol on the Halloween Card

I am going to research this hand signs history and connection with secret societies.

The Honorable Order of the E Clampus Vitus

I am also going to do some research on the Sons of Malta
I may add to this as I research it and I may take some stuff off. These are just notes right now . All of this takes a tremendous amount of time, but if nothing else I will learn something. 

I will post a Little more about this secret Masonic type society as well. For now a couple of interesting things that caught my eye. First is the name of their Chapter in Paradise California. It is known as Lodge number 7 or the "Pair O Dice chapter. The E Clampus Vitus.

Their biggest symbol or logo is an old man with an ass. 

Does it remind you of anything?

Here is a snip of the reproduction Zodiac Killer dragon card used in the movie "Zodiac"
I just thought some might be interested in seeing it . 

It is interesting this group was formed around gold mining and both of these feature digging equipment as well as other similarities. You an study the images for yourself without me having to list them out . I think this was a really good find. 

The skull and bones.

A group photo.

I post this because the monument is interesting. I found a little more on this and will do more research on it later. I may blur the people in the photo just out of respect. I don't know what the 7 with the circle around it is but I will try to find out . I am not saying this is anything but right off it just reminds me of something. 

Another symbol they use. I will find out more about it later. 

 Keep in mind I am not saying Zodiac was an Eclampus Vitus.I am just pointing out possible connections with secret societies.
