It is possible but in text format only. Let suppose you have table containing GeogCol1 column with spatial data. The GeogCol2 column is computed varchar(max) and its value is calcualted by STAsText() function from geography data:

CREATE TABLE [dbo].[SpatialTable](
      [id] [int] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,
      [GeogCol1] [geography] NULL,
      [GeogCol2]  AS ([GeogCol1].[STAsText]())
) ON [PRIMARY]

So, you may transfer spatial data as varchar texts. Their processing in Oracle is another question, of course.
