Alanis has intense, passionate loves and hates and is a jealously loyal and protective friend - or a fearsome foe. Alanis Morissette has a nasty habit of holding on to past hurts, resentments, and guilt - and to keep such feelings to herself. It is important for Alanis Morissette to learn to forgive and let go, as well as to express her feelings openly and directly, rather than hiding or repressing them.
She is not content with superficial appearances and is always probing beneath the surface of things for hidden motives. Alanis Morissette has a great deal of emotional depth.
Alanis has strong attachments to her past, the place where she grew up, her heritage, and family traditions. In fact, Alanis Morissette may be unable to step out of the habits and roles that she learned as a child. Morissette's tie to her mother is very strong and Alanis Morissette also seeks nurturing and protection from her spouse and other family members as well.
She needs love, affection, and nurturing in her relationships, and enjoys being pampered - all of which is fine, as long as Alanis is willing to give as well as receive the attention and "babying". There is a rather childish dependency on loved ones which can make Morissette cling to them, or to be very uncomfortable with any conflict which could conceivably lead to separation. Creating a loving family is certainly a challenge for Alanis Morissette, one that can be enormously satisfying if she can achieve it - and a source of great sadness if she cannot.

In love relationships, Alanis Morissette is steadfast and loyal, especially if she has a warm, demonstrative partner. She is very sensually oriented and needs lots of touching and physical affection.

In love relationships and romance, it is important for Alanis Morissette to be able to deeply respect her partner. Alanis looks beyond the superficial qualities to see their inner worth (or lack thereof), before she lets herself really fall for someone. In fact, too much glamour or flashiness is something of a turn-off to her. Alanis Morissette is capable of mature, lasting loving relationships and seeks a mate who is deep, loyal, and committed. She may be drawn to someone older than her.
She is prone to get involved in highly intense, even obsessive relationships - "fatal attractions", so to speak. At its darkest, this urge for intensity in the personal arena may compel Alanis Morissette to choose friends or mates who are rather dangerous or dishonorable characters with a penchant for manipulating and inflicting pain on their "loved ones". On the other hand, Morissette may be tempted to use her own sexuality or charm to play the same sort of game, to use love or friendship as a bargaining chip or to gain power over others. Even if her intentions are basically good, Alanis Morissette will find that her closest relationships are rather tumultuous affairs in which some rather unlovely aspects of her (such as jealousy and the desire to dominate or to be a victim) keep showing their faces. These are qualities that need to be understood and ultimately outgrown.
