Trying to show same month last year column next to the latest month column in Matrix

I am trying to show the previous year's same month column next to the latest month column in a matrix. Currently I only have 2 moths of data in PowerBI before I load all the data in after I finish the visualization and dax. The data will update monthly with a new month being introduced.
This is what I am trying to make it look like. Any help would be appreciated.

@BI-Titan ,


You need have column like these in you date tbale


Month Year = FORMAT([Date],"mmm\'yy")
Month Year sort = FORMAT([Date],"mmYYYY")


Mark the month year sort column as the sort column of the month year and use that in visual


The sort column will give both Oct together

I need the the last year's month next to latest month of this year on the far right side instead of on the left like shown in the picture. In this example I need Jan 23 coming after Dec 22 with Jan 22 next to it
