Throughout the play, Romeo frequently describes Juliet as a source of light that brightens his life, which displays his impetuous passion to be with her, consequently creating a romantic atmosphere. This is proven at the Capulet ball when Romeo sees Juliet for the first time and he exclaims, O she doth teach the torches to burn bright! It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night As rich a jewel in Ethiop’s ear― Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear. (1.5.43-46) In this quotation, Romeo
In the beginning of the play Romeo and Juliet, Romeo predicts his own fate as his “mind misgives” (1.4 104). The two young lovers are “star-crossed lovers who take their life” because they care about each other very deeply and their love is doomed by fate as they are not allowed to be with one another due to the family feud between the Montague’s and the Capulet’s who will avert them from being with one another.

William Shakespeare uses examples of astrology in Romeo and Juliet to show love and compassion. Astrological,stars are referred to in the astrological sense.

Therefore, if both households solved their conflicts, Romeo and Juliet would live a happy restful
