How To Use Esoteric Arts For Seduction

EvolveThe Game25 Comments

Astrology, tarot cards, palm reading, and rune stones have been part of the seduction community since its conception. In The Game, these topics were referred to as “chick crack” because of people’s insatiable appetite for the unknown. These four styles of fortune telling, and more like them, are all part of a group of disciplines called the esoteric arts.

The primary purpose of the esoteric arts, in regards to seduction, is to help build comfort as well as an emotional connection. Comfort- building routines, such as “The Cube” or “Strawberry Fields,” allow you to build a deep emotional connection with the person you’re interested in. The esoteric arts do the same, with the added benefit of reaching a person spiritually.

Religion, spirituality and the occult have always been powerful social topics. They allow us an escape from the constraints of the material world, and offer us the hope that we are not merely specks of dust in an indifferent universe; spirituality makes us feel like there is something larger out there working in our favor. This is why these systems have been so powerful for so long and why they remain powerful tools today.

The four most popular esoteric arts are astrology, tarot, palm reading, and rune stones. These arts are relatively complex and can seem overwhelming at first glance, but with a few simple tips you can appear as though you’ve been studying any of these arts for years.

Know the History of Your Art

Mentioning a few facts about the roots of your art will add to the perception that you are a master. Many esoteric arts have been around for hundreds if not thousands of years, so there is plenty of history to choose from. A master should always know where his art came from.

Develop a Root

Every social artist should have a story that explains how he became interested in an art that most people disregard. The story you come up with could involve a best friend who became interested in astrology, a mother who taught her son to read tarot cards, or an interest in Viking culture that led to learning rune reading. This story helps flesh out the perception that you are truly interested in the esoteric arts, and not just a guy trying to pick up women. Be sure to include some of the art’s history, as well as a personal story that supports your interest in whichever art you’ve chosen.

Learn the Variations

Astrology exists all over the world in many different forms. The same is true for many of the other arts. A pickup artist who practices the esoteric arts will eventually run into women who talk about very specific styles of an art. If you know at least a few facts about the most common variations of the arts, you’re ahead of the game.

Have Personal Experience

Whether you read the stars or read the stones, it’s crucial to have stories about other people whose fortunes you’ve told. Comparing one person to another helps an esoteric artist flesh out the world that he’s created. The best way to obtain this information is by doing as many readings as possible, including your own.

Some Common Variations

Tarot Decks

Rider-Waite: The famous Rider-Waite deck is one of the most popular tarot decks in the world. The cards contain an immense amount of astrological and occult symbolism and are one of the best decks for any beginner tarot reader.

Thoth: Aleister Crowley, a world famous occultist and influential member of an early 20th century occult group called “the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn,” created this deck based on a number of different occult systems. It features symbolism from cultures the world over. The deck has a book of interpretations that accompanies it called The Book of Thoth.

The others: Many other styles of decks exist, from a Lord of the Rings deck to a fairies deck. These alternate sets are used much more like rune stones where each card has a more personal significance rather than a specific meaning.


Western: The first evidence of astrology dates back to 3000 BCE. However, it wasn’t until the Greeks adopted it from the Babylonians that it became what most of us know as astrology today. Western astrology is the most common form of star reading. What you read about in magazines and in newspapers is a small fraction of Western astrology.

Vedic: Vedic astrology comes from India and is referred to as Jyotishi. Several universities in India actually offer degrees in astrology, due to its cultural importance. The Vedic system is similar to Western astrology in many aspects. It shares the same 12 signs that western astrology does (Aries, Taurus, Gemini, etc.), as well as the same planets (Sun, Moon, Venus, Mars, etc.). However, the difference is that it’s 28 degrees behind the Western zodiac, meaning that if you are a Scorpio in the Western zodiac, you’d be considered a Libra in Vedic.

  1. So not only do I have to internalize the countless rules of The Game, I also have to learn about this crap?
    Just kidding, and nice article, thank you for posting.

    1. You only need to learn it if it fits your personality. I can’t really see James bond doing a rune reading can you? Or others who don’t fit the model.

        1. Roger Moore ain’t James bond 😉

          And he hardly studies the subject, he just makes shit up and rigs the deck

      1. Agreed, Psychonaut.

        It depends chiefly on what sort of image you want to portray. If you want to be a mysterious and intellectual enigma, taro cards, rune reading and other routines along those lines are a clever idea.

        However, if you are like Matador or someone who is of a more ‘cool’, James Dean sort of presentation, there are other routines which suit that character.

        1. Man, it doesn’t even have to be about fitting into your player persona. You can do a tarot reading just because it’s something fun to do. It doesn’t mean you have to not break kayfabe and play psychic. Come on, you’re just having fun. Tarot cards and runes are fun!

  2. Thank you George! Which books about Tarot, Palm Reading and Astrology are about 50-60 pages long, are easy to understand, well written and have realiable info? Do you have recommendations? Thank you very much in advance!

    1. I suggest starting with Love on a Rotten Day by Hazel Dixon Cooper. It’s really easy to understand – short, and will give you enough material to use in field.

  3. Interesting read. I think most guys focus on simply building social value in order to create attraction — but the real key is engaging a girl’s imagination. A girl’s insatiable drive towards fantasy is really what makes her susceptible to seduction.


    1. If you’ve got enough social proof then you’re already engaging the imagination because they’re wondering about you.

  4. I Never could stand Astrology.. I once had a gf that drove me crazy with that stuff….to the point of sabotaging the relationship.

  5. Awesome article George! Great advice and the astrology information works wonders in field. I’ve found that when I root information it works much better than without. Your articles on this site are always insightful and I learn a lot from them!

  6. The Ring Routine described by Neil has never failed me so far. And it fits all your descriptions.

  7. I wish someone would use something like this on me, They’re such lazy men in Australia.. We need you boys out here to teach them a thing or two…

  8. Can anyone make suggestions on learning palmistry? Short books to read? Comments?

    I’d like to learn palm reading because you don’t have to carry anything with you, and, naturally, there is the opportunity to kino escalate.
