‘Beware The Ides of March’

from Facebook: Vincenzo Camuccini, “Morte di Cesare”, 1798,

While the words “Beware the Ides of March” have been used in many situations, do you know why March 13th through today is the Ides of March and why it is so dangerous?

The Ides are when the Full Moon is supposed to be at its brightest. And as many of us who are superstitious believe, strange things happen on those days. Which stands to reason, as it was this day in 44 B.C. at the age of 55, that Marcus Junius Brutus stabbed dictator-for-life Julius Caesar to death before the Roman senate by 60 conspirators.

So where did the quote “beware the Ides of March” originate? William Shakespeare from his play Julius Caesar. when a soothsayer warned of Julius Caesar with those famous words.
