Is Star Crossed Lovers a metaphor?

There isn't any "metaphor." "Star-crossed lovers" are two people who, although being in love, have "crossed" natal charts. Of course, a genuine believer in astrology would argue that there are features of their combined charts that lead them to fall in love in the first place.

Metaphors are ways of comparing things which are different but related. The term was originally used by Greek and Roman philosophers to describe two objects or concepts that appear to be identical except for one important difference. For example, "the moral universe is like a large city where each of us has a small but crucial role to play in helping it reach its full potential." (Ralph W. Emerson) Science and technology have changed most cities across the world into metaphors, but they remain different kinds of communities. A community is defined as a group of people living in the same area who share common values and beliefs.

Stars are the elements: air, earth, fire, water. Crossed lovers are the signs: Aries vs. Taurus. These are two completely different types of relationships. A star crossed lover is someone who shares many similar traits with you, but also some that are unique. Their actions may cause you pain, but they're also what makes you stand out from others your age. Knowing how to deal with anger and disappointment when it comes your way will help you navigate these relationships successfully.

Why are they star-crossed lovers?

Because individuals who believe in astrology think that the stars regulate human fate, lovers whose relationship is bound to fail are said to be "star-crossed" (frustrated by the stars). It is also applied to other doomed relationships such as those of Theseus and Ariadne, Pygmalion and Galatea, and Peter and Wendy.

Who is my star-crossed lover?

We often refer to star-crossed lovers as couples that are victims of circumstance or who are ripped apart from one other by events beyond their control. While the stars might point out flaws, you can also seek for apparently benign signals that your relationship isn't made to endure. If you see signs of abuse, don't wait for things to get worse before you act - call someone for help.

Your sign's love life will reflect how it feels about romance in general. If it's shy, avoid romantic movies and shows. If it loves to flirt via text, let it know when you're available and interested. Don't expect your sign to do all the work though - be sure to show your affection too! Give your star-crossed lover a gift every day this week, like chocolate or flowers. See what he/she likes and don't be afraid to try new things.

The astrological omens aren't clear-cut, but they do indicate that there's more than just friendship between you two. If you're both willing to put in some time, the stars may reveal themselves over time. For now, enjoy the company of this lovely Scorpio while you can.

Is Star-Crossed Lover a metaphor?

Heavenly, yet with a feeling of impending doom: Their love after death: as though stained, youth/age juxtaposition, "children's" prodigious birth of love: take love's sweet bait from frightening hooks: Danger lurks in the shadows, as though they are being caught/trapped by fate. This is a metaphor for any love that ends tragically.

Star-crossed lovers are two people who are completely and totally into each other but who are too young to know how things will turn out. This love affair will have an early ending because one or both of them could be killed before their time.

The phrase "as star-crossed lovers" was used by William Shakespeare to describe the relationship between Romeo and Juliet. They were such a perfect match that it seemed impossible they could survive their encounters. However, both Romeo and Juliet died young, which shows that even though this love was doomed from the beginning, they managed to give life something beautiful before they went.

Was their love real?

Yes, it was very real. They had a connection on a soul level that nothing and no one else could break. Even when they were told about the dangers of their actions they didn't care; they just wanted to be together under any circumstance.

Why did they not listen to others?

Because they were young and in love.
