Have you tried creating a line "Through a point, parallel to a line" using your origin point and selecting the axis you wish to mirror?

You could construct a line on the Axis using "Define Line" but an easier way is to use report feature and report the position on the perpendicular axis.

I like the previous posts...and you could report as RIBBON > REPORT > FEATURE and use r value (polar radius from the origin)
