Maybe you’re to blame and maybe you’re not. However loved ones are a bit too eager to pin things on you, so something’s up.
Sometimes the only way people discover that the grass isn’t always greener is by experiencing it themselves. Let human nature take its course. That person you’ve been seeing will be back.
A heart-to-heart reveals that a loved one has been feeling neglected. Stop treating the people you care about like items on a to do list.
Table a request for now. With the Moon opposite Jupiter, you won’t get the consideration you deserve.
Perhaps you have taken things for granted with a loved one. An intimate talk reveals how much things have changed. It’s time to get to know each other again.
Someone (or something) in a loved one’s life really gets under your skin. Maybe it’s a sibling, friend, or pet kitty. It’s time to examine buttons being pushed in you.
Don’t let others’ case of nerves give you cold feet. You know what you’re doing is right, so see it through. You won’t be disappointed.
Dealings with business partners are working at cross-purposes. Call time out so everyone can reappraise the situation.
Don’t cave in to helplessness. You may not be able to take action right now, but optimism and bonhomie still work wonders.
Resist tendencies to hand over the reins during the next few days. Ask for advice, but retain your veto power.
Are you backing a rule at the expense of being fair? Don’t let didacticism run away with you today or you’ll come across too harsh.
How much more outlandish behavior are you supposed to put up with? It’s time to put your foot down with people who are crossing the line.

Unwrap both of Tamar’s gifts below!
South Africa’s first black president and anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela has died at the age of 95.
“We’ve lost our greatest son,” said President Jacob Zuma, who announced the news via the South African Broadcasting Corporation on Thursday afternoon.
Mandela spent almost three months in a Pretoria hospital after being admitted in June with a recurring lung infection. The liberation struggle icon was discharged in September and had been receiving home-based medical attention since then.
Last month, Mandela’s ex-wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela was quoted as saying he was no longer talking “because of all the tubes that are in his mouth to clear (fluid from) the lungs.” He has been plagued several times with lung problems over the past three years and was hospitalized at least four times for the condition.
In February 2011, he was briefly hospitalized with a respiratory, infection before being re-hospitalized for a lung infection and gallstone removal in December 2012. After a successful medical procedure in early March 2013, his lung infection recurred, and he was briefly hospitalized in Pretoria. On June 8, 2013, his lung infection worsened, and he was re-hospitalized in Pretoria in a serious condition.
Nelson Mandela and wife Winnie, walking hand in hand, raise clenched fists upon his release from Victor prison, Cape Town, Sunday, February 11, 1990
The iconic leader — known for his charismatic personality, soft-yet-stirring speeches and charitable work post-politics — spent 27 years behind bars for opposing white rule in his country before becoming South Africa’s first black president in 1994. Though he served only five years in office, Mandela is recognized the world over, often seen as someone with great dignity and moral authority.
While he sought a quiet family life in retirement, he continued to meet with notable dignitaries and celebrities, weigh in international affairs and conflicts, and champion causes in which he believed, including poverty and HIV/AIDS.
At age 85 and amid failing health, he was forced to announce he was “retiring from retirement,” in 2004, retreating from the spotlight as much as possible. His last major public appearance was in 2010, when South Africa hosted the World Cup of Soccer. He was greeted by thunderous applause but made no speech.
Known for his unyielding optimism, Mandela leaves behind a lasting legacy — with countless parks, schools and squares named in his honor.
His birthday is a public holiday in South Africa, where Mandela is affectionately known by his clan name, Madiba.
For too long known as a political martyr, Mandela was sentenced to life in prison in the 1960s for trying to overthrow the pro-apartheid government. He served 27 years of hard labour, mostly at Robben Island, looking forward to his only perk — a 30-minute session with a visitor once a year. While in jail, Mandela unified the prisoners, foreshadowing the leadership skills he would use when he became the country’s first fully-representative democratically elected president.
His release on Feb. 11, 1990 was brought about in part by heavy economic sanctions imposed on South Africa by dozens of countries, including Canada.
As the world watched on television, Mandela walked confidently toward the prison gates, his wife Winnie at his side. A huge throng of reporters and thousands of supporters wait to greet him, a scene he later described as “a happy, if slightly disorienting chaos.”
His next gesture would forever symbolize his struggle. “I raised my right fist and there was a roar,” Mandela recalled.
The lyric video for Lauryn Hill’s “Consumerism” hit the web with a barrage of visceral images that whoosh by with every dizzying word she spits.
Ben Franklin’s face on the $100 bill represents “corporate greed,” prescription pills float across the screen as stand-ins for “paranoia skepticism, schizophrenic mechanisms” and images of war-torn countries scream “self-destruct” during the hook.
This may be just a lyric video, but it’s a pretty elaborate one, directed by Hill and Jon Casey.
The world’s injustices are on display alongside Hill’s angry lyrics, leaving no doubt as to the rapper’s current state of mind, post-prison.
Hooray for actress Kim Fields and her husband Christopher Morgan, who welcomed their second child into the world yesterday morning around round 10:30.
Baby Quincy Xavier Morgan was born in Atlanta and weighed in at 8 lbs., 8 oz. He measured 20 inches long.
The 44-yar-old mommy shared the exciting news with her 27,000 Twitter followers. “Praise the Lord Quincey is here,” she wrote. “We are all doing great thank you for your love, prayers and support.”
“We are so blessed and grateful to God for this newest gift to our family,” the proud parents, who married in 2007, told People. “It was planned. We’ve actually been trying for a couple years. We had gotten pregnant twice and [miscarried]. If I’m encouraging to anybody … it’s not like I’m the poster child for over 40 and pregnant.”
Fields is beautiful with her platinum blonde hair. She first announced her pregnancy on an episode of “The Real,” saying:
“I have a big announcement. I’ve been in the lab, working both personally and professionally. One of the projects that I’ve been working on has been a co-production with my husband Christopher,” she said. “This is Quincy Xavier. He’s a boy, yes. Our first son, Sebastian Alexander, he’s six now. He’s very excited. My husband Christopher is also very excited.”
She added, “We’re very, very blessed.”
Say it ain’t so. Beyonce‘s dad, Mathew Knowles, is being called a “Deadbeat Dad.”
You heard us.
This according to the mother of his 3-year-old son, Nixon, who claims Mathew Knowles has stiffed her out of $24k in child support, according to TMZ, who got a hold of California State records showing Knowles has missed TWO of the $12k monthly payments he’s been ordered to pay to Alexsandra Wright.
Sources close to Wright says she’s in a financial bind and needs the cash asap — we’re told she even had to pull her son from school because she can’t afford the tuition.
As has been reported … the legal battles between Knowles and Wright have been ugly. She claimsKnowles sent a threatening email to her in 2011 … warning “there’s a price to pay” for hurting his family.
We reached out to Mathew for comment — so far, no word back.

Rapper The Game has such a good heart (and quite a track record for charity causes, too!).
Now he is raising money to pay for the funeral of a 7-year-old boy killed during a shooting in L.A. this week — a crime that’s suspected to be gang-related.
He called in to TMZ Live to explain that he had heard about Talib Pecantte’s death on the news and decided he wanted to do something for the victim’s family … especially since it happened so close to Christmas.
Game tells us he’s already raised $7,000 to help cover the boy’s funeral expenses — but the crazy part, Game says a huge chunk of that money is coming from top-ranking L.A. gang members … rival gangs too … Crips, Bloods, and Latin gangs alike.
Though he doesn’t have a goal in mind, Game says he’s just gonna keep raising money until he can’t raise any more. He also says he’s speaking to rival gang leaders about instituting a cease-fire … at least during the holidays.
