SOME WORDS ABOUT LIZZY ROSE.
My wife of 25 years had been visiting Lizzy for a few years and always talked nonstop about the information she would be given from her appointments.
I will be honest, I did not have a high regard for this KIND of thing and was sure that Rails was throwing her money away and this woman was just sucking her in….. THEN, I got the opportunity through what can only be said was a personal tragedy, to have Lizzy visit our home for a private consultation with our family. What transpired that night was nothing short of UNBELIEVABLE, if I had not been in the room, I would still be a non believer. My idea of a WITCH, potions, lotions, rituals, words, blessings and being able to talk to the dead was the stuff only Movies were made of, until that evening. Me, a tough aussie bloke now fully convinced, a supporter, a believer in all that is LIZZY ROSE. If you doubt this form of Craft! Try it. Like me you will be opened to a whole new world. Thanks Lizzy…
PS: By the way, she’s good at AFL game outcomes and being a Hawk supporter is probably suited to her animal attractions. Soaring high.
People come in and out of your life for a reason or so they say. Lizzy Rose came into my life when I had lost my parents and brother within a short period of time, I was a customer service officer and was serving Lizzy, we started to chat and before our dealings were over I had her phone number. Since then Lizzy has provided me with so much growth, insight, understanding and Solace to deal with the journey I have. When asked by others to explain Lizzy, I am only able to say, Gentleness, Sincerity, Reverence, Heavenly, Enchantment, Fascination, laughter & Joy – who wouldn’t want to meet some-one with those qualities.
Lizzy, thank you for helping us manage, understand and move forward, release, celebrate and even reconnect with loved ones gone, you provide the perfect pathway in the safest of environments. God Bless My Spiritual Earth Mother.

I have been asked to do some crazy stories in my life; from spending the day with Hugh Heffner at the Playboy Mansion, to crossing the Kokoda Track with a bunch of scared blokes. But the most out there story involved suggestions one of the houses on Channel Nine’s The Block had a ghost!
I packed my microphone, and a healthy dose of skepticism, and set off to meet psychic Lizzy Rose on location. Immediately I was entranced; she was beautiful, funny, warm and clearly otherworldly.
Sure enough her premonition that an “Edward” was haunting the house was backed up by evidence from Ancestry.com. A couple of Edwards had indeed inhabited the houses in years gone by.
It got me musing. I’m renovating an old pub in a very historical enclave in Melbourne. It was a Blue Moon, so what did I have to lose?! A little exorcism could be fun! Lizzy Rose prefers to call it a “Paranormal Assessment”.
She arrived – not on a broomstick – but armed with incense sticks, rose petals, rock salt, amber, frankincense, cards and her wonderful comrade, Narelle. The pair took the assessment very seriously. It was quite a moving experience. After three hours they took off into the moon’s blue light and I felt very calm and happy. Money can’t buy that kind of feeling.
And no, the house is not haunted!

Witchcraft, also called witchery or spellcraft, is the use of magical faculties, most commonly for religious, divinatory or medicinal purposes. This may take many forms depending on cultural context. The belief in, and practice of magic has been present since the earliest human cultures and continues to have an important religious and medicinal role in many cultures today.
The concept of witchcraft as harmful is often treated as a cultural ideology, providing a scapegoat for human misfortune. This was particularly the case in early modern Europe, where witchcraft came to be seen as part of a vast diabolical conspiracy of individuals in league with the Devil, undermining Christianity, eventually leading to large-scale witch hunts, especially in Protestant Europe. Since the mid 20th Century, witchcraft has become the designation of a branch of contemporary Paganism, it is most notably practiced in the traditions of witches.
With a curiosity as to how these practices fit into the 21st Century, I went in search of examples of witchcraft or Paganism in contemporary Australia. I found Lizzy Rose.
Lizzy is known as Australia’s celebrity psychic, specializing in psychic, clairvoyant, tarot and mediumship readings. Lizzy has performed readings for TV personalities, AFL players and significant Melbourne personalities. She is also a High Priestess of Mumma Moon Women’s Circles and Goddess Temple Gatherings, and the founder of the Order of Wisdom, Learning and Light (OWLL), an eclectic coven and school for student witches.
Magick is a way of life for Lizzy, and has been since the age of 9. Her practice is multifaceted and takes reference from many different variations under the extremely large umbrella of Paganism. I was given the privileged opportunity to follow Lizzy over 10 weeks and document a number of rituals, events and celebrations she initiates for her coven. As well as commissioned magickal invocations for friends and clients.
I would like to thank Lizzy for opening up her home, her life and her spiritual beliefs to me. The enthusiasm she has shown for my project, the generosity of time and energy, and her candidness were completely unexpected, given the sensitive nature of such a topic.
Witchcraft and Paganism are based on positive, peaceful and nurturing foundations and it has been a blessing to see how beliefs strengthen and add value to the lives of those who believe and practice.
I would also like to extend my sincerest gratitude to the friends and acquaintances of Lizzy in the magickal community who selflessly allowed me to photograph them during various rituals, often in states of intense emotion and vulnerability. It was a pleasure observing and documenting your world.
