Pagan zodiac in ancient synagogues

This mosaic of the zodiac wheel was found at Beth Alpha, but it is only one of over a half-dozen pagan zodiacs found in ancient synagogues. What does that say about the ancient Jewish community?

This one includes Sol Invictus on his chariot riding across the sky. Clearly, some synagogues had no problems with pagan symbols.
