|pivot away from, pivot toward|
With respect to motion, the prefix 'ab' generally expresses the idea of 'from' or 'moving away from', while the prefix 'an' generally expresses the idea of 'toward' or 'moving toward'. In English, this would usually require the object to which the direction of motion refers to be specifically mentioned, except in certain forms such as forward/backward, upwards/downwards, etc. In your context as given, it's not clear what the reference object is, so you may have to be a bit vague in the translation.
