Oracle Lab


And don't worry about the vase...

Gloria Foster and Mary Alice play the two shells of the Oracle in THE MATRIX trilogy.

A model laboratory for Autumn workings
The Kitchen is a slang expression for a laboratory, and The Oracle has a real gem of a kitchen. The Oracle's Matrix themes correspond to Trump XIV Temperance, found in nature with a palette drawn from the three main types of atmosphere, rhythmn, and colour orientation that immediately follow the Autumnal Equinox. They are defined in fashion as: Metallic Autumn, Tawny Autumn, and Bronze and Mellow Autumn in sequence. All refer to Mother Nature as she prepares for the last act of her fabulous, multi-layered, dramatic annual cycle.
Late Autumn and Early Winter are discussed here.
The Oracle's home itself suggests both electric seasons, Spring and Autumn - people who don't burn daylight. When Neo and Morpheus arrive a young priestess opens the door before they knock and welcomes them assuringly before they speak. The first entry, hallway, and front room suggest Spring via pastel green walls, young children practicing varying degrees of telekinetic and psychokinetic talent, the tv with pictures of racing rabbits, and a silver spoon reference to "seer" and "dreamer" - interpretation at its best.
The moving beads that separate the front of the apartment from the area where The Oracle works her wonderful magic [inner sanctum: similar to that of Batman, The Shadow, Dr. Strange, and so forth] refer to the moving energy of both Spring and Autumn. The small plaque above the door, "Know Thyself" is a reference to The Oracle at Delphi and her prophecy. There is a myriad of definite design that conveys the purpose of the Oracle's Lab on a non-verbal level. Three Autumn types are represented, though The Matrix favors the tones, design, and tendencies of Metallic Autumn.

Gloria Foster's Sun 22° Scorpio 56' is trine the ruler of Scorpio, Pluto [The Universal Welfare Urge] - often associated with Shiva/Shakti, Akasha as a Life Force. The trine is within two degrees of perfect, unusually strong, an indication of the active, conscious search for new ways of being. The trine bestows sympathetic alignments with new research in brain function and the self-orchestration of neural patterns. Paranormal links are formed between natural etheric wave lengths and holonomic realities - there may be a study on how these two work in tandem and become greater than the sum of their parts. Although Scorpio and its ruler Pluto do not govern divination, clairvoyance, or any particular form of divination per se, all are projected to an audience with greater clarity when Scorpio/Pluto are active in a star chart, as with Foster. The cloak of invisibility, the silent dancer, and the seamless dance between heaven and hell are associated with Pluto specifically.

The combination of Scorpio and Pluto aid leadership, organization skill, and the belief in one's own mission regardless of obstacles. The pioneer spirit is always going to effect others. Foster is known as a p.c. HERA for all ages, a modern day Scorpio Savioress.

An exceptional 'Goddess of The Windpipe' as truthsayer and initiator in the first two compelling MATRIX films, she is the antedote for The Architect. The formula is the correct ratio between copper ore and lead ore. Copper compensates for lead. The Oracle transfigures herself [phoenix-like] and reasserts her status in the third installment, REVOLUTIONS [sans Foster]. Both Venus and Mercury are associated with the Oracle's character.

In Foster's star chart, her Mercury [quicksilver] 0° Sagittarius 24' rx is exactly on the cusp, conjunct her Sun and trine Pluto. Her Venus [copper] is 9° Capricorn 50', trine Neptune [Emotional ESP - the Search for Utopia], and square Jupiter [the Oracle of Dodona and The Philosophic Urge]. Venus is personified by physically attractive individuals or one's own physical appearance. Later in life, this is transferred to everything which exerts attraction and to lovers, socialites, 'beautiful people'. The core of all Venus qualities is the physical appearance. Venus in Capricorn, sign of the engineer, architect, and crystallizing tendency, bestows an ideal understanding of The Oracle, as the character is written for The Matrix Trilogy.
Gloria Foster left this dimension during September 2001 due to complications resulting from diabetes. RIP

Well known people with Venus in Capricorn include Walt Disney, Benjamin Franklin, Steve Jobs, Caroline Bouvier Kennedy, Caroline Myss, and Nina Ricci.

Oven 350

1/2 c Brown sugar, packed
1/2 c softened butter
2 tb Water
1 tsp Vanilla
1 1/2 c Flour
1/8 tsp Salt
90 Pecan halves (or substitute some crushed Brazil nuts according to taste)

Take dough by teaspoonfuls and shape around caramel pieces; press firmly onto the center of each group of nuts. Bake until set but not brown, about 12 - 15 min. Cool on glass serving dish.


Copper Insulation - Shield Your Electro-Magnetic Field
Metals that contains copper will, in a 'normal' situation, increase
the flow of energy. Copper also magnetizes most toxic factors in an
environment, diminishing distortion or likely harmful effects caused
by erosion, burn outs, or lax safety standards. Copper will guard an
area where one might construct a 'sensitive', techno-kink home base.
- General note: there is a popular term 'copper-top', not unrelated.








4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
Confectioners' sugar
4 small round egg bagels
1 1/2 pint raspberries, or other berry


Split rolls into three layers, horizontally. Stir together cream cheese and 1 to 2 tablespoons sugar, or more to taste, in a small bowl. Spread bottom half of each roll with 2 tablespoons sweetened cream cheese, then spread the middle layer; divide berries among sandwich layers. Use a fine sieve to lightly dust berries with more sugar, and stack all the layers. Replace tops of each roll.
Makes 4.



Zion hovercraft
Captain: Ballard - First Mate: Malachi
Operator: unknown - Crew: Bane

At the Captains' Crisis Meeting, Ballard offered to help Morpheus and remain behind in the Matrix to wait for contact from the Oracle. The Nebuchadnezzar had to return to Zion [maintenance] as part of the massive recall of all hovercraft to defend the city. Ballard claimed he remained so he could see what Lock would do to Morpheus when he found out. Ballard was eventually contacted and challenged to a fight by Seraph. Seraph allowed him to meet with The Oracle to retrieve her message. The crew of the Caduceus eventually made it back to Zion, but during their escape Ballard's crewman Bane was infected by Smith. In Zion, Ballard gave the message to Neo: The Oracle wanted to see Neo and tell him about The Keymaker.

THE MATRIX - Who Said It?

1) What is the Matrix?
2) I imagine that right now, you're feeling a bit like Alice. Hmm? Tumbling down the rabbit hole?
3) If I had to choose between that and the Matrix, I'd choose the Matrix.
4) Hallelujah. You're my savior, man. My own personal Jesus Christ.
5) So what do you need? Besides a miracle.
6) You believe you are special, that somehow the rules do not apply to you. Obviously, you are mistaken.
7) Whoa. Déjà vu.
8) You're cuter than I thought. I can see why she likes you.
9) How much like it? Was it the same cat?
10) Do you know what it really reminds me of? Tasty Wheat. Did you ever eat Tasty Wheat?
11) Were you listening to me, Neo? Or were you looking at the woman in the red dress?
12) I used to eat there. Really good noodles.
13) But... you already know what I'm going to tell you.
14) By the way, if you have something terribly important to say to Switch, I'd suggest you say it now.
15) There is no spoon.
16) Mr. Wizard. Get me the hell out of here.
17) If real is what you can feel, smell, taste and see, then 'real' is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain.
18) No one needs to tell you you are in love, you just know it, through and through.
19) That is the sound of inevitability... It is the sound of your death.
20) Yes. I've been looking for you, Neo. I don't know if you're ready to see what I want to show you, but unfortunately, you and I have run out of time.



1) You always told me to stay off the freeway.
2) Dammit, Morpheus. Not everyone believes what you believe.
3) You have the sight now, Neo. You are looking at the world without time.
4) We are getting aggravated.
5) Tonight let us make them remember: This is ZION, and we ARE NOT AFRAID.
6) I protect that which matters most.
7) ...just a sample.
8) He's doin' his Superman thing.
9) Touch me and that hand will never touch anything again.
10) You won't let it happen, you can't. You need human beings to survive.
11) A program was written to watch over the trees, and the wind, the sunrise, and sunset. There are programs running all over the place.
12) I have dreamed a dream, but now that dream is gone from me.
13) I've been waiting for you.
14) I hate sleeping. I figured, I've slept the first eleven years of my life away, so now I'm just making up for it.
15) Still using all the muscles except the one that matters?
16) There are levels of survival we are prepared to accept.
17) I have something for him, a gift. You see, he set me free...
18) Mark my words boy, Mark them well, I have survived your predecessors and I will survive you.
19) Morpheus went to the Oracle. After that everything changed.
20) We can never see past the choices we don't understand.




1) She'll do it. If she has to, she'll kill every one of us. She's in love.
2) Down here... I'm God.
3) It is remarkable how similar the pattern of love is to the pattern of insanity.
4) Don't you even begin to tell me what I can and can't do with my ship after your little speech.
5) Karma's a word. Like "love".
6) Ask yourself, if it were Dozer, and you knew the only chance you had to see him again was to hold the dock, what would you do?
7) Ah, Mr. Anderson, I see you are as predictable in this world as you are in the other.
8) The council wants to meet with you immediately. You'll forgive me for not attending, but I need to find a way to salvage this debacle.
9) There are no weapons allowed in this club. At the bottom of this elevator there is a coat check girl and, if we are lucky, a man to check weapons.
10) You played a very dangerous game.
11) Time's up. What's it gonna be, Merv?
12) What do you think I am? Human?
13) If that's true, then I've made a mistake, and you should kill me now.
14) Everything that has a beginning has an end.
15) This is my world.
16) If you tell me we'll make it I'll believe you.
17) Hold onto your lunch!
18) It is done.
19) Like what I've done with the place?
20) Peace.
