England eventually adopted the Gregorian Calendar in 1752, this was the same as American colonies, after 2nd September 1752 it become 14th September, eleven days were taken out to align with Rome’s Calendar. We have to be careful here, as all astronomy programmes only show the calendar reform of 1582, so we must use 14th September 1752 as a fix in London at midnight, graph below showing Alnilam, Belt of Orion rising in the East.

Obviously Sirius was still conjunct the mid-heaven by the inaccurate projected measure, placed there in 1582, so lets look at the first Gregorian New Year that England experienced, which would be midnight on 1st January 1753. The reason that England waited so long to adopt the new calendar, was they wanted to go one better than Pope Gregory XIII, they wanted to enlarge or expand the influence of Sirius, and by the beliefs of astrology, there was only one way to do this, which was to wait for a very rare alignment at the precise minute of New Year. This was achieved on 1st January 1753, when Jupiter was in the centre of the sky.

The circumstances that happened at New Year 1753, only happened again in 2002, this is obvious electional astrology, please read web-link provided that shows this Jupiter alignment, there is a section about Voltaire’s short story called Micromegas, who was a mason, he wrote science fiction about a being from the area of Sirius.

To find out the main players that adopted the Gregorian Calendar in England during this period please research names below:-

Henry Pelham, Prime Minister of England from 1743 until his death in 1754. During his premiership, his brother served as Minister of the Southern Department, and took over as Prime Minister upon Henry’s death, who is listed below:-

Thomas Pelham-Holles, 1st Duke of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, in 1731 at Houghton Hall, Sir Robert Walpole’s country house in Norfolk, he was made a master mason by Lord Lovell at an occasional lodge.

George Parker, 2nd Earl of Macclesfield, he was a member of parliament for Wallingford from 1722 to 1727, but his interests were not in politics. In 1722 he become a Fellow of the Royal Society, and spent most of his time in astronomical observations at his Oxfordshire home, Shirburn Castle. Here he built an observatory and a chemical laboratory, perhaps he was an alchemist? He was very prominent in effecting the changeover to the Gregorian Calendar, and from 1752 until his death, he was made President of the Royal Society, so they must have thought he was important. Many Fellows were masons, and indeed George Parker was initiated. During the early years of the Royal Society it did have Occult leanings, one of the founding members was Elias Ashmole who was an astrologer with Hermetic beliefs.
