I’m desperately trying to make the transition from the prison of a day job to a self-employed gig. So far one effort’s gone down in flames and the second one turned out to have problems. Some of the problems I created with my own actions, and some of them stemmed from my boss’ personality type.
I’ve been contemplating starting a business which would dovetail with the current one, but suddenly I’m afraid. Do I have any business being in business?

You are a Capricorn.
There’s not a Capricorn on this planet that does not have natural business acumen. This includes the ten-year-olds. Aside from your Capricorn sun, your chart has great emphasis on the Cardinal signs – Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn. These signs were born to lead and this is why you’re so miserable working for someone else. It’s because you are a natural boss.
I can’t see how you can be born to do something and fail. It’s clear to me you must persevere in spite of your fear of failure (and fear of success). This fear, by the way is another trait you share with every other Capricorn on the planet. So this is my first advice:
That mountain in front of you? You’re going to climb it. You’re born to climb it, so just forget about looking left and looking right and wondering, should I, will I, can I? You should, you will, and you can.
Also, you (and every other Capricorn on the planet) are goal-oriented. PERIOD. Without a “goal” and a lofty one at that, a Capricorn is barely breathing. You’ve got to climb, regardless of how treacherous it is. And I know it’s treacherous. But have you ever seen a mountain goat spend their life in a meadow? That’s a joke.
Looking around is wasting your time. Climb.
