Hello, Gematrinators!

Founding of Freemasonry – Grand Lodge of England

Premier Grand Lodge of England (Wiki)

Freemasonry honors its date of establishment as June 24th, 1717, marked by the founding of the Premier Grand Lodge of England.

June 24th is the date that leaves 190 years in the calendar year:

"Solar eclipse" = 190 (Reverse Ordinal)

The previous night, the moon had gone full shortly before midnight, meaning the moon was 99%+ illuminated.

Full Moon = 289 in Hebrew

289 is 17 × 17.
“Mason” = 17 (Full Reduction)

This date also fell a span of exactly 112 weeks after this total solar eclipse that was visible in London, England.

“Mathematics” = 112 (English Ordinal)
“Circle” = 112 (Reverse Ordinal)

"Freemasonry" = 130 (Jewish Ordinal)

"Total eclipse" = 130 (Jewish Ordinal)

I haven’t confirmed this, but based on all the times I’ve looked at total eclipses, I would be surprised if they occurred more frequently than once every 100 years in London. (update: it’s roughly 1 every 400 years)

June 24, 1717 was 14 months, 3 days after the next (and most recent) total solar eclipse.

“מעגל (Circle)” = 143 (Hebrew Gematria)
“The Premier Grand Lodge of England” = 143 (Jewish Reduced)

Measuring from the Full Moon the night before to the next total solar eclipse:

Span of exactly 112 weeks

Finally, measuring to the next total eclipse after that:

43 months, 3 days

“Solar eclipse” = 433 (Jewish)
This is also exactly 1313 days.


33 is the number of masonic obsession. The 12-month lunar calendar must add one year every 33 solar years to keep pace. 33 factors to 3 × 11, and the moon is 3 / 11ths the size of the Earth.

The name of the lodge has matching Reduction gematria with the Ordinal values of “thirty-three”.

The Lodge's name has matching gematria with "thirty-three"

The 33rd prime number is 137. The 137th prime number is 773.

"The Premier Grand Lodge of England" = 773 Jewish


The Grand Lodge of England went “extinct” on December 27th, 1813. This date, too, measures up nicely to the total solar eclipses of that decade.

Total solar eclipse = 202

It was 202 days before the next total eclipse:

Notice that eclipse occurred on the date 7/17. 7 × 17 = 119

“All-seeing eye” = 119 (English Ordinal)
“Saturn” = 119 (Francis Bacon)
“שַׁבְתַאִי (Saturn)” = 713 (Hebrew Gematria)
“Total eclipse” = 713 (English Extended)
713 is the 11th prime multiplied by the 9th prime.

1109 is the 186th prime number. The extinction date, 12/27, falls 186 days after 6/24, the founding date.

Three years later, there was a total solar eclipse on the date 11/9. Measuring from the Lodge’s extinction to that date:

Span of exactly 202 weeks

In numerology, 202 represents the same as 22, since 0’s are ignored. 12/27/1813 also happens to fall 220 weeks after a total solar eclipse, and 22 weeks after another.


22 is the master builder number. The freemasons consider themselves master builders, so it’s no mystery why they structured these dates around the eclipses like this.

Master Builder number = 220 Ordinal

London, England = 220 Reverse

The 1813 extinction date means the Lodge was 96 years old when it closed.

“Freemason” = 96 (English Ordinal)
