Oh okay then I guess I misunderstood altogether. So Access was just an example datasource. I sadly must agree with Paul on this.
Depending on the version of Oracle you have - I think the Oracle Locator option comes freely packaged in which will give you basic spatial functionality - not advanced, but perhaps enough to get you by. Not quite as detailed as PostGIS as I recall from the literature, but I've never worked with it.
If you wanted to visualize both Oracle and PostGIS data in mapserver and didn't want to move geometry into Oracle - OGR OVF connection might be an option.

At the risk of losing a PostGIS user, if your attributes are permanently
inside Oracle, the most effective solution would be to move your shapes
to Oracle too. That way you could join them on-the-fly in SQL inside
Oracle quite efficiently. Mapserver will let you do this, as well as
other tools. And for those tools that don't, you can create a view that
materializes the join.
