Sorting columns from last year/last month on the left to this year/last month on the right

I have a column chart where it shows the month closed for the past 12 months. It is now the beginning of April 2024, so I want it to go, from the left hand side, April 2023 to March 2024. Instead PowerBI will show it from January to December where January is in 2024 on the left and December 2023 is on the far right. This is confusing for users. 

(I think that will make sense when you look at the image of how it is displayed today.

Your "Month Closed"  column must be a date, not just a month.  Use the date formatting to achieve the required format.
