"It is the East, and Juliet is the sun. Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, who is already sick and pale with grief" (2.2.3-5)
Romeo and JulietThe Capulet's Garden
"Ay me." (2.2.27)
Romeo is talking to himself about how Juliet is far more better than Rosaline and compares them both.
"O, speak again, bright angel, for thou art as glorious to this night," (2.2.29-30)
The idea of forbidden love is the contrast between light and dark, as there is no middle, and one side must be chosen. Romeo's choice of words, "fair sun...kill the envious moon," displays how he chooses Juliet and wants Rosaline to remain in the past.
Act 3 Scene 5
This relates to the motif of opposing forces because the sun and moon are two completely different things and this causes conflict for Romeo because he falls in love with his enemy who is described as the sun (noticeable) whereas his old love Rosaline, the moon (less noticeable).

"Then, window, let day in, and let life out." (3.5.41)
The idea of forbidden love is the contrast between light and dark, as there is no middle, and one side must be chosen. Juliet's choice of words, "O, now begone. More light and light it grows." meaning, hurry up and go before it's too late and someone sees you in this broad daylight.
"O, now begone. More light and light it grows." (3.5.35)
This relates to the motif of opposing forces because the sun and moon are two completely different things and this causes conflict for Romeo because he cannot be seen with Juliet, so he meets her when it's dark otherwise he would get caught in the daylight since it's so bright and he would be easily noticed.
"More light and light, more dark and dark our woes." (3.5.36)
Shakespeare demonstrates how Romeo could easily get caught when it's day since it's so bright whereas when it's night and pitch dark.
