The Ides of March

“Beware the Ides of March.”
Do you know what this phrase actually means? In Latin, the phrase Ides of March is “Idus Martias.”According to, the phrase “ides of March” is usually the middle of the month, the timing of the first full moon. The “ides” were the times the full moon fell on the 15th. That’s not every month, it’s actually March, May, July and October. The expression ‘Beware the Ides of March’ derives from the historical fact that Julius Caesar was murdered by a group of Roman senators on the Ides of March (the 15th), 44 BC.
