Opinion: learning the Tarot, then here is one approach: build your own quick reference cards (but not copying others;). Create a series of tables with columns and here are some suggestions.
MAJORS: number, full name, primary keyword (as a "mental trigger"), brief description of the message upright & reversed
SUITS: name, primary action (e.g. feel for Cups), other keywords
MINOR NUMBERS: number, common meanings
MINOR COURTS: name, four columns for each suit, then fill in your interpretation of each combination
MINOR PIPS (1-10): similar to Courts.
SYMBOLS: most common symbols used and their meanings
COLOURS: most common colours used and their meanings
CARD COMBINATIONS: a list of card combinations you want to remember.
Then review and revise over and over again. Treat them as living documents and keep them with you for exercises in Facebook groups.
Hope that helps
Addition to avoid any confusion: one immediate criticism is the recommendation of a primary keyword I mentioned above. It would be a mistake to limit the range of meanings to one word. You miss too much. I use a keyword as a mental trigger to a wider network of related ideas. If that makes you uncomfortable then use multiple keywords.
