Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2027 after 13 days on 22 March 2027 at 10:44.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 38 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 25 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠242.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠278.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
5 days after point of apogee on 3 March 2027 at 05:41 in ♑ Capricorn. 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 19 March 2027 at 04:31 in ♌ Leo.

7 days after previous South standstill on 1 March 2027 at 09:41 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.684°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.611° in the next northern standstill on 15 March 2027 at 14:15 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
