Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 3 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠223°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠257.8°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 13 September 2058 at 22:43 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 29 September 2058 at 18:56 in ♒ Aquarius.

9 days after previous North standstill on 11 September 2058 at 14:56 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.586°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.727° in the next southern standstill on 25 September 2058 at 22:35 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 10 days on 2 October 2058 at 01:36 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
