If I understood what you want, you could measure the angle of the tilted lines, then rotate the object to be moved along those iines using the same angle, and then use alignment handles to move the object using the mouse:


I do not know if there is more effective method of measuring an angle, but I used here a rectangle that i rotated around the corner handle that was aligned with the end point of one of lines, and then used the value (61.1 degrees) to rotate the ellipse, to get the alignment handles in correct orientation. 

If you instead meant whether it is possible to have angular guide lines (or use existing lines as such) which you could then use to have objects snapped to them from e.g. tangential edges, or any selected point in the edge outline, then I do not think that this is supported at the moment, but I may be wrong.

Rotate the circle to the angle of the lines, and use the alignment handles to slide the ellipse up and down the lines.


Alignment handles

When enabled, alignment handles appear as you drag objects, allowing you to place them precisely by lining them up in accordance with other objects in your document. Alignment handles are especially useful for aligning the edges or centres of multiple selected objects to another page object or guide.

Show Alignment Handles To add alignment handles to a selection:
  1. With an object (or objects) selected, click on the Move Tool.
  2. From the context toolbar, select Show Alignment Handles. When selected, alignment handles are displayed at the centre and edges of the selected object. Hovering over these handles displays a floating guideline across the page.
  3. Drag the selected object via any alignment handle (centre or edge) to align it to a page element on the spread. This position can be snapped for accuracy.
