Moon* ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 14 September 2025 at 10:33.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1830" and ∠1911".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2025 after 16 days on 7 October 2025 at 03:47.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 317 of Meeus index or 1270 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 48 minutes. It is 2 hours and 43 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 4 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 59 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠93°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠127.7°.
9 days after point of perigee on 10 September 2025 at 12:09 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 26 September 2025 at 09:46 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 391 775 km (243 438 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 5 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 552 km (251 998 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♍ Virgo at 23:13 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 5 October 2025 at 09:20 in ♓ Pisces.
12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
5 days since the previous standstill on 14 September 2025 at 21:23 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.630°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.599° at the point of next southern standstill on 29 September 2025 at 06:09 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 1 day on 21 September 2025 at 19:54 in ♍ Virgo the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
