A recurring motif in Romeo and Juliet are stars. They are symbolic of several things. Romeo and Juliet talk about each other as sources of light: "O she doth teach the torches… to burn bright," "it is the east and Juliet is the Sun", "and he will make the face of heaven so fine that all the world will be in love with night and pay no worship to the garish sun". In this last quote, Juliet wants Romeo to be cut out "in little stars". Stars, like torches, illuminate the night, and the night is the time for love, just as the day is the time for fighting. Stars are also symbolic of fate. In the prologue Romeo and Juliet are described as "star-crossed". Romeo later says, "Then I defy you stars!"
Lots of things are symbols in Romeo and Juliet. Indeed, words are symbols and the play is made up entirely of words. Similes and metaphors are a particular kind of symbol whic…h is spelled out for you in the text. In "like a rich jewel in an Ethiop's ear" the jewel symbolizes Juliet. There are more general tendencies for one thing to have the same symbolic meaning. Some are conventional: "stars" are a symbol for fate (This is conventional because of the influence of astrology). In a general way, the heat of day symbolizes anger and fighting, but this is particular to this play. Benvolio uses this symbol when he says "the day is hot and the Capulets are abroad."
\nSymbolize is a loaded word... It means "representd." "$" represents money, or "MPH" represents "Miles Per Hour," but those are specific and direct things. If I showed you th…e color red and asked you, "What does this remind you of?" Guaranteed, you would give me a laundry list of answers. That is why your question is loaded. \n. \nHow to find Symbols and their Meanings?\n. \nStep 1. What does the writer or author keep coming back to? Major Topics or Issues? Race, Identity, Love, Family, Freedom, Success, etc.\n. \nStep 2. What was the CONFLICT (problem) in the situation/plot/story?\n. \nStep 3. What did the character do to cause that problem, but hopefully resolve it?\n. \nStep 4. Is there a relationship between the character, the conflict and the Major Topics?\n. \nFIND PATTERNS!!!\n. \nNOW FOR THE LAZY ANSWER....\n. \nRomeo can represent one of 4 things...\n. \n1. Indecision- Remember who made all of the decisions throughout the conflict...\n. \n2. Lust- How many girls did Romeo have a crush on? Juliet and ROSALINE! Did he really love and care for Rosaline? (Listen to what his friends Mercutio and Benvolio have to say about her!)\n. \n3. Cowardice- Remember how Romeo fights? He never starts them, but everyone seems to die around him, even his mother. How does he react when these people die? Tears, profuse apologies, and tread marks from his shoes...\n. \n4. Foolish Love- Would you really marry someone you just met? He and Juliet met, married, mated, and then became martyrs in less than a week! \n. \nSo, there you have it.
Bloody rose, dagger, poison. (Actually, a bloody rose has nothing to do with Romeo and Juliet. Roses really only come up in Juliet's famous line "a rose by any other name woul…d smell as sweet".)
Juliet showed it by killing herself for romeo and vice versa. they also fought to through many emotional, ohysical battles to love each other
"I do bite my thumb, Sir." Symbolizes an insult "He's a man of wax." Symbolizes that Count Paris is good-looking "So shows a snowy dove trooping with crows." Symbolizes that J…uliet among the other girls (including Rosaline) looks more beautiful than all the others.
Romeo and Juliet's suicides symbolize their undying love for one another. Romeo killed himself so he could stay with Juliet forever in eternal life, and when Juliet awoke to f…ind her love dead, she killed herself for the same reason.
Thinking of Paris as a symbol doesn't do the poor sap much justice--he is a character, not a symbol. I suppose you could imagine him symbolizing arranged marriages or somethin…g, but it takes away from the way the play is structured. Indeed, if you view the characters as symbols, you are straying from the main point of the drama.

Yes, Romeo does say that Juliet is the sun, immediately after saying "But soft! What light through yonder window breaks? It is the east and . . ." It's a metaphor. He means th…at Juliet is like the sun--warming, illuminating, and bringing life.
