Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2038 after 15 days on 21 March 2038 at 02:09.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 44 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 19 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠149.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠175.3°. 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 21 February 2038 at 08:05 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 March 2038 at 00:39 in ♈ Aries.

4 days after previous South standstill on 28 February 2038 at 20:34 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.311°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.441° in the next northern standstill on 15 March 2038 at 13:46 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
