Just to clarify all the confusion over global or national Equinox's, the Vernal Equinox begins in Jerusalem at 1320 hrs on 20 Mar 2014, Therefore you must follow your time zone change to ensure proper coordination of the time. The problem is that people do not understand Gods Law and timing, so they have no idea of the New Moons and Equinox's, but from what I understand the Chinese are close or fairly accurate to the original cycle. You can't base anything on a Northern nation or hemisphere, they must follow the time zone changes and Daylight savings actually throws them out of sync since this is only for mans advantage and not the natural alignment of nature for harvests and plantings.

Everything is known once you understand the basic laws of God and how mankind has changed everything to fit their needs. The Christians and modern Jews (not Israelite's) have corrupted every law of nature and God, so all things, including the Roman Calendar we follow are all in error.  Study to be approved, and all thing are understood.

I don't want to make someone feel stupid, but today marks the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere only.  Picture number eight is from Australia - today is the first day of their autumn or fall, not spring.
