I couldn't find a spiral equation, but you can fake one by creating a clip that has a registration point that's offset (by 200 pixels maybe) then changing that clips rotation every frame along with reducing it's scale. As it goes around in circles it gets smaller and smaller creating a spiral.

Maybe it will help,
