Yes, all the planets spin on their axis. Even the sun spins, completing a rotation about once a month. In our solar system, the giant gas planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune) spin more rapidly on their axes than the inner planets do and possess most of the system’s angular momentum. None of the planets spin in a perfect circle, as they all have a some amount of wobble to their spin. Although, day-by-day you really can’t see the wobble.
Most planets in our solar system spin in one direction all of the time. Some planets spin in retrograde to the sun. Venus actually spins almost completely from a horizontal axis, as opposed to a vertical axis.
