I just came across your post quite randomly. I don't use this site but I signed up feeling drawn to your request for further guidance. (The universe is always listening).
You need to be more specific about what exactly you are asking. Since the two of you have a sort of unlabeled relationship, it overlaps internally and externally, in many realms of thought and being. This can confuse your reading - depending on the interpretation ... and also manifests in the physical - you are asking a question - but do you know what it is you Truly want? . . . Be certain in reading both the cards, and moreso yourself (as objectively as possible, free from desire)! (The hardest part of reading is deciphering between ego and spirit).
Based on the cards - spirit acknowledges that you are currently in a position, whereby you have to let go of much which you have felt be a part of you, to move forward. This streams through many of your interlocking relations, including the obstacles they have thus far presented you with. Spirit reassures you that NOW is the moment that requires you to specifically clear your past to make space for your future.
You have not always had good relationships - not only with 'lovers' but with a union in 'love' generally. You have had people deceive you, and too many loved ones hurt you. Your friend and you understand each others pasts, struggles, and circumstances. You have both been on similar yet very different journeys. In a way, you offer reflections of strength. Still, you must not deceive yourself or each other - and be careful not to hurt yourself too (but not so careful you forget to take chances).
Spirit forewarns that a healthy support toward one another does not turn into a detrimental dependence - whereby cycles of your past relations come to haunt your present - including instability, illogical action, reckless patterns of indulgence, and inevitably shifting health, wealth, and stealth - of one !
Spirit reassures you that you can make the right choices - to put you on the path you belong on - the one, by which thousands of doors can finally be seen opening, rather than perceived as shutting.
As for your relationship, it can go either way - depending how you will now view it, and the energies the two of you may or may not be willing to share.
Spirit leaves you with only this advice:
Do Not Fear.
