Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 31 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 38 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠310.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠332.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
9 days after point of apogee on 6 August 2091 at 07:42 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 18 August 2091 at 06:08 in ♎ Libra.

Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 17:38 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 28 August 2091 at 18:22 in ♒ Aquarius.
At 17:38 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
3 days after previous North standstill on 11 August 2091 at 15:21 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.890°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.873° in the next southern standstill on 24 August 2091 at 11:30 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
