Is there any difference between the motion of swirling and spinning?

Spinning means revolving around one's own axis which is stationary, or a rod that has a fixed spool.
Swirling, as in swirling of dust or swirling of jet fumes, need not have a stationary axis. Swirling also means twisting motion around some thing which is characteristically different from spinning.
