Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 29 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 34 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠92.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠129.8°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
8 days after point of perigee on 23 February 2065 at 13:24 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 11 March 2065 at 13:11 in ♉ Taurus.

3 days after previous South standstill on 28 February 2065 at 12:50 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.754°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.648° in the next northern standstill on 14 March 2065 at 23:55 in ♊ Gemini.
After 2 days on 7 March 2065 at 02:15 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
