In my previous post I mentioned a way to get the ticks oriented correctly. Here is the code: R[ang_] := 3*(0.25 + 0.75*Cos[ang + 0.2]) Rotate[PolarPlot[Abs[R[ang]], {ang, 0, 2*Pi}, PolarGridLines -> Automatic, PolarAxes -> Automatic, PolarTicks -> {Table[{a*Degree, Rotate[a*Degree, -90*Degree]}, {a, 0, 360 - 15, 15}], Automatic}], 90*Degree]
