look_at() works, but my polygon uses the wrong side to look at

Hi. So, in this 2D game I’m working on I have this rectangle-shaped polygon that has a look_at function set up like this:

func _process(delta):
  var plr_pos = get_node("../../../../Player").pos

It seems to work, however, it’s supposed to aim at the player, and my rectangle is using the wrong side to do that. How can I fix this?
Thanks in advance.

You can either add (90) to the rotation
Or make it negative, that also works

Or start with your object pointing to the right (along the +x axis), which is 0 rotation.

rotation_degrees -= 90
to the code above worked. Thanks, guys
