The fact that Caesar changes his mind often during this scene is directly related to superstition and the Romans' belief in omens foretelling the future. Caesar's wife has had a nightmare, the sacrifice gives him warning, and yet, Caesar is afraid of appearing cowardly. Thus, he goes to the Senate regardless, and reinterprets the omens to alleviate his wife's fears.
