Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2083 after 19 days on 4 March 2083 at 07:34.
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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1027 of Meeus index or 1980 from Brown series.
Length of current 1027 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 25 minutes. It is 1 hour and 16 minutes shorter than next lunation 1028 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 41 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 22 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠55.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠89.1°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 8 February 2083 at 11:16 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 February 2083 at 07:16 in ♉ Taurus.

After 4 days on 16 February 2083 at 18:15 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
