    Use a repeating task to switch the particles positions to where you want.

    You cannot animate particles. Once particles are spawned to clients, you completely lose control of them. You can't move them. You can't even despawn them - you have to wait the client to automatically despawn them.
    Of course, FloatingTextParticle is an exception. That's because FloatingTextParticle isn't even a particle - it is actually an entity.
    So you can just make the particles spawn, like, per second continuously shifting directions.
