Re: Pathfinder Sorcerer/Oracle Spell Selection
First of all, a word of caution. While combining Oracle and Sorceror for a Mystic Theurge might seem like a good idea because of the Charisma-synergy, remember that you will be 4(!) caster levels behind for most of your career, and that you will be restricted to 2nd-level spell until level 10. That's a massive disadvantage in play, and I would advise against such a build myself.
Maybe you could achieve something with similar fluff by playing an Oracle and taking the Eldritch Heritage feat line to get some of the powers of the Starsoul bloodline, without crippling your spell progression? Of course you should play what you want, but just be warned that this build might be really frustrating to play at low levels, and will never get 9th level spells in either class unless you have some early-entry trick.
As for thematic spells, your obvious focus as an Oracle of the Heavens are Illusion: Pattern spells, because of the power of the Awesome Display revelation. Color Spray can actually be your most potent offensive spell for a huge part of the game, though remember to slap Heighten and/or persist on top of it later on to keep the dc high.
Since it might be good for you to take Spell Focus and Greater Spell Focus: Illusion to take advantage of this, other illusion spells would be obvious picks too - unfortunately there are few of those on the cleric list, which I guess could be one advantage of doing the Sorceror/Oracle MT.
Otherwise there are a lot of spells that are star-, moon- or night-themed, though they probably appear more often on the Sorceror list as well.
