Re: orion DSS omen texts

Others can answer more expertly, but, offhand, for starters:
A number of astrological and exorcism texts may be of interest. James 
VanderKam's Enoch and the Growth of an Apocalyptic Tradition, 1984. 
4Q318 brontologion as discussed by Jonas Greenfield (and Michael 
Stone?) in JNES and in later editions. D.L. Penney and M. O. Wise, "By 
the Power of Beelzebub: An Aramaic Incantation Formula from Qumran 
(4Q560)" JBL 113 (1994) 627-50.
