This New Moon true anomaly is ∠46.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠75°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 25 September 2035 at 13:37 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 8 October 2035 at 19:01 in ♑ Capricorn.

12 days after its descending node on 16 September 2035 at 02:58 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 29 September 2035 at 03:21 in ♍ Virgo.

3 days after previous North standstill on 24 September 2035 at 23:19 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.804°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.877° in the next southern standstill on 8 October 2035 at 14:46 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 3 days on 1 October 2035 at 13:07 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
