Cracking the Code


Val Sherill - Tarot Translator

I was 14 years old when Aunt Darlene asked me and my two sisters if we would like to learn how to read cards. We, of course, jumped at the opportunity.

After awhile, my sisters lost interest, but I couldn’t get enough. It was the most fascinating thing I had ever encountered. I was completely hooked. I would do readings in the school cafeteria during lunch for anyone and everyone willing to sit with me.

Fast forward some thirty years later and I am as fascinated, now, as I was way “back in the day.” Tarot just never ceases to amaze me.

What I’ve Done…

I worked the psychic hotlines in the early years of 2000. I was one of the assistant managers of the Tarot For Life online community and mentor for TFL’s Reader’s Group where I guided novice readers through the process of applying what they learned into the art of Tarot reading. During this process, they were able to discover their unique reading style and voice.  One of my students now writes a Tarot column for an online newspaper. I’m so proud of her!

Before shut down their chatrooms, I could often be found doing readings under the screen name Valness with my buddy known as VoidWizard. (We still miss those days.)

I was a guest on the award winning BlogTalkRadio show, Beyond Worlds hosted by Donnaleigh de LaRose and Theresa Reed.

Why “Tarot Translator”?

Tarot is a language of symbols (think hieroglyphics, but different). The language of the subconscious and intuition - a code to be cracked. I translate these pictures into words  - kind of like what the Rosetta Stone did for hieroglyphics.

My readings are practical and realistic. I am a firm believer in the power of free will. In other words, we can be a slave to destiny or a master of it, be controlled or take control - our choice. My intuitive reading style sheds light on the root of a problem and offers reasonable insights on ways to handle it. I’m a huge fan of feeling empowered, optimistic, and in control. This is what I strive to provide my clients with every reading.
