January 15, 2022 (Day 15):  A powerful undersea volcano erupted in the Pacific near Tonga at 5:10 pm local time (0410 GMT) on January 15, 2022.  The massive eruption sent ash into the sky from the bottom of the ocean, and loud booms could be heard many miles away in Fiji, Australia, and Japan.  A boom was even heard in Fairbanks, Alaska.  The volcanic eruption has been estimated to be the largest of the 21st Century.

As the magma boiled up, tsunamis (generally less than three feet high) struck Tonga and crossed the Pacific striking Australia, New Zealand, Japan, other Pacific islands, Peru, and the United States.  Coastal areas of Tonga were flooded with rushing water, and boats and debris were driven onto land.

The Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai undersea volcano that erupted was about 40 miles North of Tonga in the South Pacific.  Weather satellites picked up the eruption from temperature changes on the surface and the ash clouds that formed overhead.  Earthquake monitors registered a 5.8 magnitude vibration.

The image of the shock waves of the eruption on the sea surface was reflected in the planets overhead.  At the time of the eruption the astrological chart showed an overturned Bowl lying perfectly horizontal along the Ascendant, Descendant (East to West).  A Plow through the center of the Bowl pointed to the Redeemer Planet in Aquarius, for being redeemed from the sea.  The Moon was rising in Taurus and the Red Planet was setting in Scorpius.  In a two-dimensional view from Heaven the arrangement of the planets would correspond to the concentric circles of the waves of the tsunamis formed by the volcanic eruption.

The Kingdom of Tonga is a sea kingdom, like Tyre, Sidon, and Carthage (like the merchants who will trade with Babylon, Rev 18:11-13).  The name Tonga means southwards, since the islands of Tonga are the southernmost group of central Polynesia.  Tonga is an archipelago of 169 islands with 36 inhabited.  It has a history of conquering kings, who dominated the region.  It was evangelized by the Wesleyans and still bears the legalistic traditions of protestant Christianity, such as Blue Laws.   From a health perspective Tonga and Nauru have the world's highest overweight and obese populations with 70% of Tongan females obese.  The first case of COVID-19 was reported in October 2021 in a passenger from New Zealand.

Spiritual Meaning

The erupting Tonga volcano boiling up from the sea was clearly visible from satellites.  It was like a boiling pot.  As the hot gases rose to the sea surface, clouds of ash shot into the sky, and concentric rings of waves were driven across the ocean as tsunamis.  When the rogue waves hit the beaches, they washed up debris, flooded the land, and streamed through the streets.

The stormy waves of the sea foaming up refuse symbolize wicked people under the power of Satan in the Cosmic System (Isa 57:20).
Isaiah 57:20 Wicked Like the Tossing Sea
But the wicked are like the sea that is tossed;
For it cannot rest,
And its waters cast up refuse and mud.

The wicked are those in the Cosmic System who are conformed to the evil policy of Satan, and therefore, enslaved by him (1 Jn 5:19).  They are full of anxiety and have to no rest.  They are agitated and have no peace.  Refuse and mud are the dead works and evil deeds of reversionists.

The stormy waves also symbolize false teachers like the Gnostics, who are intent on destroying the Church with their evil deeds (Jude 1:13).
Jude 13
Stormy waves of the sea, foaming up their own shameful deeds; wandering stars, for whom the black darkness has been reserved forever.

"Stormy" is the Greek a!grio" (agrios), which literally means wild and out of control, but means stormy when applied to nature.  A storm-tossed wave is more powerful than a normal wave.

Breaking waves form foam and wash up refuse, which corresponds to shameful deeds.  Shameful deeds are often associated with private, intimate deeds, which bring shame when exposed.

"Wandering stars" are comets.  Stars are fixed and symbolize believers, but comets wander around the heavens and symbolize unbeliever reversionists.

The astrological chart at the time of the volcanic eruption contained a Bowl with a Plow pointing to the Redeemer Planet in Aquarius.  A Bowl is a bowl of blessing or cursing.  A Plow symbolizes intense suffering, like being plowed under.  And the Redeemer in Aquarius symbolizes being redeemed from the sea.  Dead unbelievers will be redeemed from the sea and go to the Great White Throne Judgment where they will be judged for their dead works and sent to the Lake of Fire (Rev 20:13, 14, 15; ref. John 12:48).  Their works were not good enough to get them into Heaven.  Only faith in Christ provides Salvation.

Now the powerful volcanic eruption caused the water to boil and form tsunamis (tidal waves).  The volcano symbolizes the female, and the eruption symbolizes her passion.  The volcano in the sea symbolizes the passion of the Prostitute of Babylon and the tsunamis sent out to the surrounding nations symbolize fornication of the Prostitute of Babylon with the kings of the Earth (Rev 17:1, 2; 18:3, 9).  The water running across the land and through the streets is also symbolic of the Prostitute of Babylon and female promiscuity (Prov 5:16, 20).

There must also be a reason for the volcano being located near Tonga.  Tonga is a sea kingdom with the king under the power of Satan like the other kings of the Earth (1 Jn 5:19).  As the volcano was erupting in Tonga, the Queen of England was dealing with problems associated with the Prostitute of Babylon in the royal family.  When the volcano erupted, the Moon was on the Ascendant in Taurus, for a royal court or a prosperous group.

Tonga is also one of the two nations with the highest obesity rates.  Obesity has many causes.  It isn't just a physical problem.  It is also a spiritual problem.  It is a sign of the Four Generation Curse (animal types).  It is a sign of failing the prosperity test (Deut 32:15; Ps 73:3-4, 7).  Angels and demons control metabolism.  Satan made Job skin and bones (Job 19:20), and he can make people fat (Jer 5:26, 27, 28; Job 15:20, 27).


Tongo VolcanoThe Chart at the time of the Tonga volcano eruption contains a Bowl and a Plow.  The Bowl symbolizes a bowl of blessing or cursing.  The volcano was a sign of cursing.  A Plow symbolizes intense suffering, like being plowed under.  The Plow pointed to the Redeemer Planet in Aquarius, for being redeemed from the sea, corresponding to the resurrection of the dead for the Great White Throne Judgment ((Rev 20:13, 14, 15).

The Bowl was turned over and perfectly aligned along the Ascendant/Descendant.  In the center was the Redeemer Planet at the point of the Plow.  In a two-dimensional view from Heaven, the arrangement of the planets would correspond to the concentric circles of the waves of tsunamis emanating from the eruption.

The Moon was on the Ascendant, for a royal family or prosperous group.  Tonga is a kingdom with a royal family, and the royal family in England was in the news during the eruption with its problems associated with the Prostitute of Babylon.

The Red Planet in Scorpius was on the Descendant, for suffering from Satan.  This sign was previously near Midheaven during the Bronx fire on January 9, 2022 and 90 degrees back for the Philadelphia fire on January 5, 2022.  So, this cursing from Satan that arose with the Philadelphia fire and peaked with the Bronx fire has now gone down in association with the Tonga volcano.

Tsunami Deaths Update

Three women were killed in the tsunamis from the volcanic eruption.  The men with the women all escaped, but the women were killed.  Angela Glover, 50, originally from Brighton, UK, was swept into the sea from the island in Tonga and died while her husband was able to survive by clinging to a tree.  She was trying to rescue four of her five dogs that were caught in the tsunami.  She is associated with the Moon in Taurus in the astrological chart, where Taurus corresponds to the location of Great Britain.  The number 50 is for the Church and may be a sign of weakness in conflict with the state.  This corresponds to the conflict between the Evil King and Prostitute of Babylon.  Dogs symbolize Gentile reversionists, and obsessive love of dogs is caused by a demon (spirit).

Two women also died on Naylamp Beach in Peru as they rode in a truck that was caught in the tsunami.  The male driver escaped, but they died.  They were Heyner Quiroz Obligas, 46, and Wendy Altamirano Montenegro, 23.  Peru corresponds to Gemini in South America.  By the time the tsunami arrived in Peru, the Moon had advanced into Gemini.  The two women fatalities corresponded to the Moon in Gemini.


The Tonga volcano erupted on January 15, where 15 is for a covering.  The volcano was covered by the sea, and planets overhead formed an overturned bowl precisely aligned from East to West.  The overturned bowl symbolized a bowl of cursing poured out.

The hot gases rising up formed concentric circles of waves that crossed the Pacific as tsunamis and struck the surrounding nations.   This symbolized fornication of the Prostitute of Babylon with the kings of the nations.  The boiling up of the hot gases from the volcano symbolized the passion of the Prostitute.

Tonga was struck by tsunamis that washed up refuse and debris, symbolizing the dead works of reversionists.   These dead works will be the source of condemnation of unbelievers at the Great White Throne Judgment.  The sea will give up its dead as symbolized by the Redeemer Planet in Aquarius in the center of the bowl at the time of eruption.

Three women died in the tsunamis while the men with them survived just as happened in the Philadelphia fire.  This corresponds to the  attack of the Evil King upon the Prostitute of Babylon in the Tribulation.  The women all died in the sea.  If they are unbelievers, they will be resurrected on the last day and go to the Great White Throne Judgment.
