The sun/moon/stars symbolism is associated with heavenly, spiritual love [example].
mym observes: See also the great "wings of night" speech in Romeo & Juliet, a play packed with references to Love, the moon, the sun and the stars:
Come, gentle night, come, loving, black-brow'd night,
Give me my Romeo; and, when he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
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.
another case where astronomy will have to be revised.
