But does the rotation of the galaxy have an effect on the rotation of the solar system? Are we side on, are we coplaner with the galaxy and rotating backwards?Not particularly, no.
The plane of the galaxy (yellow) meets the plane of the solar system (red) at an angle of just over 60 degrees.
Here a diagram of both, with the celestial plane (the blue plane passing through our equator) also included.
