Thirteen Powers of the Witch Blessing

Never heard of this before. Not sure who wrote it but one site gave credit to Silver RavenWolf. I found it interesting both as a blessing and a listing of powers/abilities of a witch. I think it is one of those things that the more you read it the more you get out of it. Blessings

Thirteen powers do the Witches claim
their right of lineage by Goddess's*(insert name of Goddess you work with here) name.
Tie a knot and say the words
or hand on head - the blessing conferred.
A Witch can give success in love
curse or bless through God/dess above.
Speak to beasts and spirits alike
command the weather, cast out a blight.
Read the heavens and stars of the night
divine the future and give good advice.
Conjure treasure and bring fortune to bear
heal the sick and kill despair

This is my birthright to have and to share
blessings you, (the person's name),
may the spirits be fair.

It is by SRW from her book "Solitary Witch". It's based on the thirteen "gifts" of Aradia from Charles Leland's book "Aradia, or the Gospel of the Witches" (circa 1899):
