Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2037 after 16 days on 2 March 2037 at 00:28.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 458 of Meeus index or 1411 from Brown series.

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 36 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 27 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠146.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠173.2°. 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°).
12 days after point of perigee on 1 February 2037 at 06:58 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 February 2037 at 23:45 in ♓ Pisces.

2 days after previous South standstill on 11 February 2037 at 08:55 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.580°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.631° in the next northern standstill on 25 February 2037 at 22:25 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day on 15 February 2037 at 04:54 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
