Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 14 March 2084 at 10:06.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1783" and ∠1927".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2084 after 4 days on 22 March 2084 at 06:48.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1041 of Meeus index or 1994 from Brown series.
Length of current 1041 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 48 minutes. It is 52 minutes shorter than next lunation 1042 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 59 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠58.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠92.7°. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 14 March 2084 at 19:06 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 March 2084 at 14:45 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 402 047 km (249 820 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 564 km (229 636 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♋ Cancer at 04:22 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet ascending node on 30 March 2084 at 08:50 in ♑ Capricorn.

3 days after previous North standstill on 14 March 2084 at 02:47 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.104°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.978° in the next southern standstill on 27 March 2084 at 20:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 4 days on 22 March 2084 at 06:48 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
