Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2037 after 18 days on 31 March 2037 at 09:53.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 459 of Meeus index or 1412 from Brown series.

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 58 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 5 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠173.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠197.5°. 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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 1 March 2037 at 19:48 in ♍ Virgo. 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 March 2037 at 01:18 in ♓ Pisces.

1 day after previous South standstill on 10 March 2037 at 14:37 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.688°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.814° in the next northern standstill on 25 March 2037 at 05:57 in ♋ Cancer.
After 4 days on 16 March 2037 at 23:36 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
