Yes you have spotted the problem with all these calculations.  As the 
planets move in fixed orbits, they will reach the same positions and 
conjunctions over an over again.  Yet some people will continue to waste 
time on futile and pathetic attempts to appear "scientific" rather than 
actually learn the meaning of the Ramayana.
