Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 47 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 22 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠327.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠345.1°. 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 1 March 2043 at 13:38 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 March 2043 at 09:10 in ♈ Aries.

5 days after previous South standstill on 5 March 2043 at 13:06 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.608°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.648° in the next northern standstill on 18 March 2043 at 08:45 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
