Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2058 after 10 days on 2 September 2058 at 16:51.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 725 of Meeus index or 1678 from Brown series.
Length of current 725 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 14 minutes. It is 27 minutes longer than next lunation 726 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 30 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 33 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠196°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠223°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 17 August 2058 at 13:13 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 September 2058 at 14:39 in ♒ Aquarius.

10 days after its ascending node on 13 August 2058 at 02:08 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 27 August 2058 at 14:29 in ♐ Sagittarius.

8 days after previous North standstill on 15 August 2058 at 09:06 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.374°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.493° in the next southern standstill on 29 August 2058 at 15:55 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 10 days on 2 September 2058 at 16:51 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
