I am trying to make a shape move around a circular motion path, i want it to remain in its vertical position as it does. right now it appears anchored to the centre of the motion path and spins in 360 rotation. Can anybody offer me any tips on keeping my image at a fixed vertical viewpoint but still move along my chosen motion path?

In the Layer drop-down menu, select Transform and turn off auto orientation.

Hopefully this is what you're looking for.

If that solution doesn't work, I suppose the hack solution would be to replicate the opposite of your rotation in the rotation of your object over the duration of your movement. (i.e. Spin the object the opposite way that it's traveling)
