Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2033 after 14 days on 6 November 2033 at 20:32.

This lunation true anomaly is ∠190.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠217.2°. 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°).
