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 Sagittarius, with the Sun, Neptune, Mercury and Uranus all in Saggo. She was also Moon in Aries rising with Venus-Jupiter in Scorpio.
I may remark that the curious transformations many formulae can undergo, the unsuspected and to a beginner apparently impossible identity of forms exceedingly dissimilar at first sight, is I think one of the chief difficulties in the early part of mathematical studies. I am often reminded of certain sprites and fairies one reads of, who are at one’s elbows in one shape now, and the next minute in a form most dissimilar.
As quoted in Toole, Betty Alexandra (1998), Ada, the Enchantress of Numbers: Prophet of the Computer Age
The computer language, Ada, used by the U.S. Department of Defense, was named after her. She is also the subject of a Steampunk graphic novel and her name is attached to multiple girls coding courses around the world.
