What is the flip_h equivalent for particles?

I have a particle created using CPUParticles2D. I am using that particle or the converted particles2D because Im on MAC.

I want to flip the particle I have created. I have one that sends up a dust cloud that swirls. I want to duplicate it and flip it so that it does the same thing just on a flipped or mirrored horizontal axis.

I was able to do it at first by switching the scale value inside of transform x = -1. However, when I uncheck Local Coords property in Drawing it messes it all up. I unchecked local coords so the dust particles stay at the location where emitted at and not follow the parent object as it moved back up.

Rotate it by 180 degrees?

I did try rotating it. However, because I wanted this not in Local Coords It would rotate everything. So then instead of my dust swirling up it would swirl down. I ended up having to mirror every property that I used. ex instead of Angular Velocity being 235 I put -235, my orbit velocity from 0.3 to -0.3 and so on. It seems a little unnecessary but I really could not find anything that would just mirror/flip the Particle. This is how I got mine to work. so now I have an object that falls and when it hits the ground dust particles puff out and swirl on both sides of the object.
