A PDF copy of "A Full Volume of Splendour & Starlight", this contains all the astrological poetry that Andrew Watt has composed between 2003 and 2019.
Arranged in four books and closing out at 116 pages, this volume (printable at your local copy-shop) contains
I: The Neo-Orphic Hymns (including three never-published-before, for Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto) [10 poems];
II: The Behenian Stars (including some not in H.C. Agrippa's list, but still important) [18 poems];
III: The Decans of the Zodiac (all thirty-six) [36 poems];
IV: The Mansions of the Moon (all twenty-eight) [28 poems];
V: The Constellational Hymns (the six most important and favorable to mortals: two for Orion, Cassiopeia, Gemini, Ursa Major,and the Pleiades) [6 poems]
All the ninety-eight poems follow the structure of **Odes**: thirty lines in three ten-line stanzas, suitable for private reading or in a group — 2940 lines, over 25,000 words!
The book is printable on 8.5x11" paper (Also available in A4). Downloaders are recommended to get it printed once at their local copy shop, and make marginal notes, illustrations and diagrams in the extra space around each poem — only then does it become "a full volume of splendour and starlight".

Beautiful, evocative writing that is very well typeset and laid out. I especially appreciated the two sizes available, Letter and A4. Print this on some good paper and enjoy.
These hymns shine. They capture the form of translations of the Orphic Hymns that I have read by Athanassakis and Dunn. These are adapted for modern use and add to the line of tradition. If you are interested in working with astrological powers, I recommend this book for ritual text.
Thank you for these hymns. I'm using them often in ceremony.
