An occult thing is something that is clandestine, hidden, or secret. The word comes from the Latin occultus, meaning "knowledge of the hidden". Webster's defines the verb occult thus: "To shut off from view or exposure."
In modern usage, "occult" refers to any one of a number of supernatural practices. These may include tarot cards, ouija boards, psychic powers, witchcraft, charms and spells of various forms, voodoo, some pagan rituals, demonology and divining for resources.
