Ada Lovelace – Saggo Genius Of Awesome

Today is the birthday of Ada Lovelace – the Enchantress of Numbers, as she was known in her day.  A prototypical computer programmer, she foresaw artificial intelligence and a myriad of other mod developments. She was a gifted mathematician and inventor who some say invented the first computer. Lovelace was also an enthusiastic lover (the co-instigator of many a scandal) keen gambler & the daughter of the ultra-Aqua Lord Byron.

She was a multiple conjunct Saggo – Sun-Neptune-Mercury-Uranus all in Saggo…She was also Moon in Aries rising. Super-Fire…Oh and Venus-Jupiter in Scorpio, which explains some of the appetites she explored alongside her cerebral pursuits. Awesome woman, she died sadly young of gynae issues that would probably be perfectly easily treated today.

O.m.g. SURELY this is a Kiera Knightley role just waiting to happen?  Sex, Science & Frockage?  Byron, suitable for a multiple Aquarian, was said to be the best looking and maddest man on the planet at the time.

  1. Speaking of Sagg…have had so much fun riding the bus this week…

    And, on advise of Aries dad, took the bus to get a #10 metric wrench, plyers and cola to clean battery terminals. Have done it before and it works…but the caked on goop is quite extensive now as hot, hot summers in desert.

    I will have Ada to add to my inspiration to get the job done…If not, I will call Triple A and have them bring me a battery…

    • Did have to get a tow to a garage but only $13.56 for battery terminal replacement…was just corroded beyond repair..

      In any case, told Pisces/Aries Merc that this week, riding the bus has been good for me and it was..Feel like I’ve been on an amusement ride and saw all kinda peeps. Just so much more a part of life when you’re out there and interacting and figuring out how to get from point A to B..

      Most of all, it alleviates fears…fears of the unknown..Most important of all. x

  2. The Saggo thing got passed on…her daughter Lady Anne Blunt did important work in the breeding of Arabian horses.

      • I love them so much! I grew up competing in rodeos and always had Quarter Horses and Appaloosas, but it’s always been my dream to have an Arabian someday.

        Many rodeos only allow Quarter Horses to compete (which is way stupid, imo) but there was an organization I competed in that allowed any horses. One girl had a gorgeous black Arabian that was soooo fast! Beating Quarter Horses left and right.

        Arabs just have this elegance and beauty that sets them apart from all other horses.

    • Yes. He was said to be the first real celebrity and some of his out-there behaviour would stands the test of time because it would still be scandalous even by present standards. Mainly that he had an affair with his half-sister which resulted in a child (or so they say).

  3. Somehow this makes me think of Boswell’s London journal. perhaps the issue/consequence of STDs and random sex in the park. I bet her journal is more interesting/enlightening than his

  4. MY TWWINN!!!!!! My first Astro Twin!

    I’m a sag sun-merc-venus-uranus-neptune AND a moon in ARIES and Cancer Risinnngg babbay. I also have jupiter in Scorpio like this lady too. I’m currently a professor at a prestigious university, a dancer, a super lover, and multi-media artist….never married, at the age of 30 I was wondering if I was just living out my dreams as a wanderlustful woman. Reading this soothed my sometimes anxious nerves!!!! nice :)

    I think my father was a romeo back in his day too, and an ultra brainiac. My mother was a beautiful trophy to him so I suppose I’m one of those rare birds just living in my own dimension. Always a party with me.

  5. I was just reading about her the other day during some research. I never knew before that she was Lord Byron’s daughter! Her mom was so hurt by Byron that she made it her mission to over-educate Ada in math and science so that Ada would be hyperrational and never go mad…or date poets. lol

  6. what an amazing woman, she had a lot of sagg like me :) i have uranus, mars, neptune and jupiter!

  7. FUQ YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    really, mystic, you do the most interesting astro profiles everrrrr
    Anyone who calls you pseudo-intellectual can shove their attitude up their hash pipe and smoke it. You’re brilliant. May I add, you’ve change my life?

    YES.

    Had it not been for your chart-work and horoscopes I would never have had the courage to change my life in the way I have done so recently. I am forever in gratitude. (I’m also a little drunk, but this virgo will still spell correctly)…
    You’ve empowered me, with astro.
    Countless others, no doubt.
    It’s social AND metaphysical. It’s like atoms in space and time. Like the beating of butterflies’ wings (the butterfly effect). Long may you reign, Astro Queen.

    • Yeah and though i was drawn to the language and take in the stars i used to read in the Weekend Aust mag, i think Mystic has stealth bombed me. I’m a notorious cynic in some aspect.

      Do you think as you come into your power there gathers a group and from there you channel and draw collective power, which ups your awesome?

      Reading Mystic over time makes me think so.

      • Oh and not a cynic over Mystic, of course, just as a general part of my nature. A weird thing for someone also trusting :)
