This lunation true anomaly is ∠195.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠223.9°. 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°).

3 days after previous South standstill on 25 January 2036 at 21:59 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.277°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.249° in the next northern standstill on 8 February 2036 at 23:26 in ♋ Cancer.
After 13 days on 11 February 2036 at 22:09 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
