Ask the Oracle  

The Delphi Oracle was a sacred place in antiquity. The temple to Apollo was a place where people could ask advice about their future.

A priestess called the Pythia acted as a mediator between humans and the god, Apollo, giving mysterious and sometimes non-sensical answers to their questions.
