Tarot Traditions???

So I've dabbled in reading tarot on and off and I want to really immerse myself and become fluent in Tarot. I have a problem though. I had 3 different books with very different information. An example being that one book might say that card x is the first card in a spread and the other would say card y is the first in the same spread. Or a position in a spread will represent something different in each book. Then of course there is the card interpretation.

I have had good results despite the differences as long as I know from the start which way I'm following, but that isn't really conducive to learning and being a self-sufficient reader. I'd rather not depend on books for the rest of my life.

So what I'm asking you all is this: Can anyone tell me about the different traditions. I assume the differences in these books come from following different traditions (for instance one is very heavy on Cabala) I think the only way I'll be able to learn is if I know what the traditions are, and can choose the one that makes the most sense to me then start from there.

Also if you could suggest beginner and intermediate level books following the different traditions I would greatly appreciate it.
