His solar return 2005/2006 reflects Saturn on the 6th house which can be interpreted as a stressor on health issues. Triggers to the SR can occur as early as 3 months prior to start date of a SR. Also note the 12th house and the planets there. I am uncomfortable using any sort of astrology when predicting death. But here check out the solar return per astrodienst:
Astrology aside, if indeed the news being reported is factual; (lets not forget the news reporting and the W. Virginia miners and the illness/death of Arafat), and Sharon has suffered a stroke affecting his brainstem, medically if he can survive and breathe on his own again, then he just beat a lot of odds against him. Roughly only 20% of the population who suffer a stroke affecting brainstorm survive. Even with survival he wouldnt be able to continue in office.
I would be curious to hear Theo's input on this news and his predictions for this coming spring. Sharon stepping aside in power due to death or debilitation and thus power to another, where will this leave Isreal? The country is in the midst of a lot of transitions and reforms at this time, along with upcoming elections.
