The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon after southern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 10 March 2064 at 08:07 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.823°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.727° at the point of next northern standstill on 25 March 2064 at 03:21 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 days on 18 March 2064 at 01:45 in ♓ Pisces the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
