Retrogression Analysis

|| Om Gurave Namah ||

Dear Guruji and Jyotishas,
 I tried to see how often does a graha get retrograde. I tried an everyday position for 60 years (21914 days) period. Here is a summary.

You can note that Venus is lowest, with only 7.3% times being retrograde and Saturn is retrograde most often times at 36.36% times.
The order is of how often a graha gets retrograde is not in any particular order in when seen as a whole. But, The outer planets are increasing order and inner are in decreasing order.

Warm Regards
Sanjay P

NOTE: If any one is interested to verify the data, It can be provided on reques or the method to generate it.

Graha Venus          Mars           Mercury        Jupiter        Saturn        
Retrograde Days 1600 2081 4188 6641 7971
Total Days 21914 21914 21914 21914 21914
Percentage 7.301269 9.496212 19.11107 30.30483 36.37401

The following command was executed using the swiss ephemeris command line test program
swete32.exe -b1.1.2007 -n21914 -p2 -g, -fPYls >Mercury_Speeds.CSV
The above was redirected to a CSV file.
The -p2 was done for values from 2 to 6 i.e Merc to Saturn.
