Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠10°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠10°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠26.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon before perigee

13 days after point of apogee on 21 July 2097 at 14:19 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 August 2097 at 01:35 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon before northern standstill

13 days after previous South standstill on 22 July 2097 at 05:45 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.475°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.559° in the next northern standstill on 5 August 2097 at 00:09 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 7 August 2097 at 16:00 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
