Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2077 after 14 days on 8 April 2077 at 11:05.

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠10.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠28°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 23 March 2077 at 17:12 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 5 April 2077 at 09:27 in ♍ Virgo.

5 days after previous South standstill on 18 March 2077 at 14:47 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.499°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.601° in the next northern standstill on 31 March 2077 at 04:33 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
