related to magical powers, supernatural or magic, mysterious, paranormal, unnatural, unworldly, otherworldly, weird, bizarre, abstruse, obscure, impenetrable, cryptic, arcane

In the broadest sense, the occult is a category of supernatural beliefs and practices considered to neither fall under religion nor science, encompassing such phenomena as those involving mysticism, spirituality, and magic in terms of any otherworldly agency. It can also refer to other non-religious supernatural ideas like extra-sensory perception and parapsychology. Use of the term as a nominalized adjective has developed especially since the late twentieth century. In that same period, occult and culture were combined to form the neologism occulture by Genesis P-Orridge.
