During our Doors Open in May, I visited a Masonic temple where this lodge room is located. I knew little about the Masons before the visit and still don't understand what it is about but it was interesting to see behind the usually closed doors. The mural on the ceiling of the lodge room features the zodiac symbols and is there to remind members of a greater presence above them rather than any connection to astrology. The checkered floor is called the "mosaic pavement" which has specific meanings that are explained to members once they have been initiated. Everything in the room seemed to have some deeper meaning, many of them secret.
