Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2041 after 15 days on 17 March 2041 at 20:19.
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 2 hours and 54 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 15 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠14°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠32.1°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 1 March 2041 at 19:56 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 14 March 2041 at 07:06 in ♌ Leo.

4 days after previous South standstill on 26 February 2041 at 07:28 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.040°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.133° in the next northern standstill on 11 March 2041 at 02:59 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
