I'm not sure exactly what you are trying to do. You'll get more (and
more useful) replies if you post a specific, working example that people 
can copy/paste into Mathematica instead of trying to figure out what you 
mean and make up an example themselves.

That said, it is easy to make a polar curve rotate. For example:

r[\[Theta]_] := 5 + 10 Cos[\[Theta]]

  PolarPlot[r[\[Theta] + \[Alpha]], {\[Theta], 0, 2 \[Pi]},
   PlotRange -> 16], {\[Alpha], 0, 2 \[Pi]}]
