[gramail] To what extent can one detect a person’s essence and overleaves from the physical appearance – and to what extent are these masked by astrological, genetic and environmental influences?
[Michael Entity] Overleaves are biological and can be seen to some extent with a keen eye or moreso with a scientific eye, but not so readily as to be able to translate the Overleaves into a visual system. All variations of Overleaves are inherent in every biological creation of Essence, but only certain characteristics “rise to the surface” for use in the life. Certain codes are initiated during the formative years of a body (the first 7 years or so) and as those overleaves take hold, so can some of the biological attachments associated with the available gene pools of the time.
There are some parallels where the DNA is able to produce an output of code that is synchronized with a system that is similar to, or is actually, our Overleaf System, and personality issues can be dealt with in this manner. For the most part, the visual expression of a body is limited to the 3 facets of the Body Type Overleaf, and to that extent, is the only Overleaf that can be “seen” with any accuracy. All other Overleaves would be enhancements or challenges within that structure, depending on the fragment’s use of those Overleaves in various cycles of the life with that particular body.
Overleaves in relation to Astrology: The bodytype is found at the mid heaven upon conception of the body. If one can cast a chart in the appropriate way, one would be able to see the astrological influences that helped choose the primary body type. The natal chart is a map of potentials for that particular body type, which can include a number of potential overleaf combinations, though, in most cases, this can be easily broken down to see an emphasis on some combination of Inspirational, Expressive, Action, or Assimillative Energies, using the elements as a reference.
Genetic influences do not mask overleaves, but give expression to the Overleaves over time.
Environmental influences have more to do with the fragment’s process of opportunities for learning how to choose, and how he or she chooses how to learn, more than it has any influence on the Overleaves, directly.
