The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 767 of Meeus index or 1720 from Brown series.
Length of current 767 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 18 minutes. It is 2 hours and 15 minutes longer than next lunation 768 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 34 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 29 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠201.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠232.2°. 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°).
4 days after point of apogee on 8 January 2062 at 09:05 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 January 2062 at 20:23 in ♋ Cancer.

10 days after its descending node on 2 January 2062 at 00:30 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 16 January 2062 at 15:36 in ♓ Pisces.

3 days after previous South standstill on 9 January 2062 at 02:13 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.405°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.481° in the next northern standstill on 22 January 2062 at 20:38 in ♊ Gemini.
After 12 days on 25 January 2062 at 03:37 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
