 A MidSummer Night Solstice Ritual.
Titania That very time I saw (but thou couldst not), Flying between the cold moon and the earth, Cupid, all armed.
Puck Over hill, over dale, through bush, through brier, Over park, over pale, through flood, through fire; I do wander everywhere, swifter than the moon's sphere; And I serve the Fairy Queen, to dew her orbs upon the green.
Puck, softly Now the hungry lion roars, And the wolf behowls the moon; Whilst the heavy ploughman snores, All with weary task fordone.

 CliffsNotes::A Midsummer Night's Dream:Book Summary and Study Guide
From stepmother, the moon is transformed in the course of a few lines into the image of fruitful union contained in the “silver bow,” an implicit reference also to Cupid’s arrow, which draws lovers together.
In her inconstancy, the moon is an apt figure of the ever-changing, varied modes of love represented in the drama.
As Oberon says when he first sees Titania, they are “ill met by moonlight.” Notice how the fairy world is directly connected with the cycles of the moon: As “governess of the floods” (103), the moon, which is pale in anger because of Titania and Oberon’s argument, has indirectly caused numerous human illnesses.

 SHAKESPEARE AND RENAISSANCE ASSOCIATION
In fact, according to Yates, the image of vestal virgins is associated with the moon because "the moon is the symbol of empire, and the sun of papacy.
The image of Cupid and his bow, however, is most obvious in the vision given by Oberon of Cupid who "loosed his love-shaft smartly from his bow" at the "fair vestal" (2.1.159, 158).
True, there are Oberon’s incidental references to the ‘fair vestal’ and ‘the imperial vot’ress…in maiden meditation, fancy-free’…But there is also the speech by Theseus…in which he sets starkly before Hermia ‘the worst that may befall’ her if she refuses to marry the man her father has chosen for her" (207).

 JS Online: 'Wonderettes' recalls marvelous times
The first act catches the moment when pop was morphing from the adult schmaltz of "Allegheny Moon" to the ponytail fluff of "Lollipop" and "Stupid Cupid." The rebel-without-a-cause menace of early rock is overlooked in favor of the teen-crush romanticism of "Sincerely" and "Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight."
If you're of a vintage that remembers kissing good night in the front seat of a '58 Chevy to the strains of "Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight," the chances are much better that you'll warm to the company of "The Marvelous Wonderettes."
The Wonderettes themselves are shy, flustered and largely innocent, although highly prone to turf wars over boys.

 JOHN KEATS: HIS LIFE AND POETRY, HIS FRIENDS, CRITICS AND AFTER-FAME, by Sidney Colvin, 1917
Endymion walks on to the sound of a soft music which only intensifies his yearnings: is led by a light through the alleys of a myrtle grove; and comes to an embowered chamber where Adonis lies asleep among little ministering Loves, with Cupid himself, lute in hand, for their chief.
Endymion now in his own person takes up the inexhaustible theme of the moon's praise, asking her pardon at the same time for having lately suffered a more rapturous, more absorbing passion to come between him and his former youthful worship of her.
Endymion's earthly passion, born of human pity and desire, was one all the while, had he but known it, with his heavenly passion born of poetic aspiration and the soul's thirst for Beauty.
