1. It is written in the stars. In the prologue Romeo and Juliet are referred to as ‘star crossed lovers.’ Astrology as a motif for date is a common idea that Shakespeare uses in all his plays such as ‘King Lear’ and ‘Julius Caesar.’

2. Foreshadowing. Many characters foreshadow the fate of Romeo and Juliet very early on in the play. When he attends the Capulets ball, Romeo believes that attending it will end in a ‘untimely death.’ When the Friar marries Romeo and Juliet, he says ‘these violent delights have violent ends.’ The Friar is foreshadowing the fact that Romeo and Juliet’s marriage will ultimately end in their deaths. All of this foreshadowing suggests that no matter what they do, the two characters’ fates is ultimately destined to be death
