Length of current synodic month is 20 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 49 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠46.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠76°. 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°).

7 days after previous North standstill on 12 October 2036 at 00:39 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.162°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.273° in the next southern standstill on 25 October 2036 at 00:51 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
