Well you can kind of Hype Symbol Duct Tape a move like you mention. However to change trajectory you may need a little more in the way of rigging some magic in your symbols.
In this sample.
I just create a loop animation in a Symbol.
Then put an ON DRAG action onto the symbol
Or an ON DRAG that controls the timeline and position so you can go to another spot on the timeline where for example the satellites reverse orbit.
