Oscillating through a magnetic field

Our slar system oscillates up and down through the galactic magnetic plane. Does that make the our sun rotate? Let's test.

Imagine the spherical magnet is our sun and the larger magnet I am holding is the galactic magnetic plane.

For simplicity I will oscillate the galactic magenetic field up and down. In reality it is the solar system moving up and down through the galactic magnetic plane.

So it appears the sun's rotation could be a direct result of it's orbit oscillating up and down through the galactic magnetic field.

Do the planents of our solar system rotate due an interaction with the sun's magnetic plane, or the galaxies magnetic plane? I am going to assume a trickle down affect and the galaxy affects the sun, and the sun affects the planets.
