The horoscope of J Jayalalitha is shown here. Notice that the Ascendant makes a hard aspect to a stellium of planets in the fourth house. Most prominent in the stellium is a Mars-Moon-Saturn-Pluto conjunction.
Pluto empowers whatever it touches, adding extreme range of depth and height in expression. Saturn represents ambition, effort, and accomplishments that require time to achieve. In a natal chart, Pluto conjunct, square or opposition Saturn is sometimes associated with major accomplishments, even fame. Pluto empowers Saturnian structure, discipline and ambition to the extreme, making record-breaking feats possible.
Saturn-Pluto aspects are known to be present in the horoscope of dictators. Coincidentally, the Italian dictator Benito Mussolini  also had a similar Mars-Moon-Saturn-Pluto conjunction aspecting his Ascendant.
Jayalalitha’s Ascendant was conjunct Rucha. Delta (δ) Cassiopeia, Rucha, is a star on the knee of the proud Queen. The picture of Cassiopeia describes Jayalalitha perfectly.

In astrology, the Ascendant, Sun and Moon are considered to be important as far as health and vitality are concerned. In Jayalalitha’s chart the progressed Sun [12ta] was forming a square to her radix Pluto [13le]. Since her natal Ascendant was square Pluto-Saturn, this activation became the primary cause of her death. A secondary factor was transit Saturn [17sa] making an upper quincunx aspect to her natal Ascendant [17ta]. The upper quincunx is often referred to as an aspect of death. With transit Sun [14sa] reaching a conjunction to transit Saturn [17sa] on December 5, a tertiary cause was finally also in place. With natal Saturn-Pluto in Leo (ruler of heart), death finallycame through a cardiac arrest.
