Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2052 after 14 days on 14 April 2052 at 02:29.
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 3 hours and 50 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 19 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠335.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠352.1°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 20 March 2052 at 04:36 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 1 April 2052 at 05:25 in ♉ Taurus.

13 days after its ascending node on 16 March 2052 at 22:32 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 31 March 2052 at 00:11 in ♈ Aries.

7 days after previous South standstill on 22 March 2052 at 23:15 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.333°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.325° in the next northern standstill on 4 April 2052 at 21:04 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
