Manage episode 290105613 series 2726040
Welcome to a most delicious Witchcast in which Lucy delves deep within the rich occult symbology of Robert Eggers’ masterpiece, The VVitch. Discover the fascinating associations between hares and witches, why goats were chosen to stand in for the “devil” and the truth behind the dark archetypes brought to life within this New England folktale.
This episode is filled with magickal history and occult art references - including which Old Masters painting inspired the final scene of the VVitch, and just how much of a nightmare the goat playing Black Philip was for one cast member (who ended up in the ER!). Lucy then answers some really tricky questions about when to reveal secrets, coping with crushes and why placing your faith in gurus (or people who claim they are) is never likely to go well. Featuring the Oracle of the Hidden Worlds, haunting pagan songs and so much fun, this is a stellar magickal episode!
