This New Moon true anomaly is ∠36.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠60.5°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 5 July 2025 at 02:29 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 20 July 2025 at 13:52 in ♉ Taurus.
