Occultist

|

By Morningbird

An occultist is a person who studies the occult. It is a general term that encompasses anyone who studies metaphysical subjects, paranormal phenomena, magickdivinationastrologyalchemy and anything else that might be considered supernatural. Self-identified occultists, however, aren’t just dabblers. They tend to make deep and serious study of one or more of these subjects and seek to become experts in their field.
