Do all the planets in the solar system spin?

Yes, but different rates and, in some cases, directions. Venus spins so slowly that its year (roughly 225 Earth days) is shorter than its day (the equivalent of 243 Earth days). It also rotates in the opposite direction: The sun rises in the west and sets in the east!

In our solar system, the giant gas planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune) spin more rapidly on their axes than the inner planets do and possess most of the system’s angular momentum. The sun itself rotates slowly, only once a month. The planets all revolve around the sun in the same direction and in virtually the same plane. In addition, they all rotate in the same general direction, with the exceptions of Venus and Uranus. These differences are believed to stem from collisions that occurred late in the planets’ formation. (A similar collision is believed to have led to the formation of our moon.)
