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!"
