Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 44 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 25 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠6.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠23.4°. 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°).
11 days after point of apogee on 23 February 2032 at 18:41 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 March 2032 at 06:54 in ♓ Pisces.

1 day after previous South standstill on 5 March 2032 at 11:40 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.866°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.775° in the next northern standstill on 18 March 2032 at 04:54 in ♊ Gemini.
After 5 days on 11 March 2032 at 16:25 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
