Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2067 after 21 days on 30 March 2067 at 20:08.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 830 of Meeus index or 1783 from Brown series.

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 13 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 56 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠18.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠37.6°. 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°).
12 days after point of apogee on 25 February 2067 at 01:39 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 March 2067 at 00:40 in ♒ Aquarius.

1 day after previous South standstill on 8 March 2067 at 17:24 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.547°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.428° in the next northern standstill on 21 March 2067 at 15:43 in ♊ Gemini.
After 5 days on 15 March 2067 at 08:29 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
