Romeo and Juliet: The Hidden Astrological Keys (Adapted from Shakespeare and the Stars) by Priscilla Costello
The “Shakespeare and the Stars” series celebrate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death and offer fresh and exciting insights into the ever-popular works of the world’s greatest playwright. Each analysis specifically highlights Shakespeare’s use of the archetypal language of astrological symbolism in both obvious and subtle ways. Such references would have been well known in Shakespeare’s time, but their deeper significance is lost to modern-day playgoers and readers.
By keying each play to a specific zodiacal sign and its associated (or ruling) planet, Shakespeare alerted his audience to their significance in revealing character, foreshadowing the plot, and establishing key themes for each play.
Romeo and Juliet is associated with Gemini and its Ruler Mercury.
