Locking rotation to a point in comp

First time posting here. Hopefully someone can help me out!

I'm looking for an expression, or series of them, that will lock the rotation of an ellipse (circle) to a point in my composition.

The desired end effect is that an off centre highlight on that ellipse (circle) will alway face a gradient acting as a point of light.

Hopefully a screenshot of the project is below. The star is the 'light source'

I appreciate there's probably a much better way of achieving the above but the end result needs to remain 2D, while looking like there is depth to the ellipse.

Thanks in advance!
