Calphurnia, Caesar's wife, is seen imploring him not to go to the senate- house, where he will be murdered. It is a view from inside an elaborate Roman home, with a highly polished floor and marble columns The line is the soothsayer's message to Julius Caesar, warning of his death. The Ides of March didn't signify anything special in itself his was just the usual way of saying "March 15th" On the eve of the Ides of March a storm is raging in Rome (Act I, Scene 3). It's a storm unlike any other. Fire falls from the skies, bodies spontaneously combust, lions roam the capital, ghostly women walk the streets, and the night owl was seen shrieking in the daylight.
