How can i know the value of a null which is already linked to another layer?

Hi! im breaking my mind with this subject, im trying to do a machine in after effects using expressions, the thing is that i have 2 different rotating circles, and i want to put a bar in between connected to both of them using a beam effect.

Im placing a null in the exterior part of the circle so it will move in a circular way, but i cant link beam to it because the value its fixed.

I know this must be a very basic stuff but i cant find the way to solve it.

Thanks
Ivan

Is it 2D? If so, this should work,

L = thisComp.layer("Null 1");
L.toComp(L.anchorPoint);
