During the celebration of the feast of Lupercalia, Cassius approaches Brutus and starts to try to undermine Caesar in Brutus's mind.  Basically, Cassius tells Brutus that Caesar is being given too much power by the Romans.  He also argues that Caesar is not fit to rule Rome.

Cassius appeals to Brutus to do something about Caesar.  He says that Caesar is going to destroy the Roman Republic and that he (Cassius) would rather die than live under a king's rule.

This is not what causes Brutus to start to worry about Caesar's growing power -- he's already been worried about it.  But it does increase his concern.
