This lunation true anomaly is ∠332.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠349.5°. 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 30 September 2091 at 16:41 in ♉ Taurus. 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 October 2091 at 09:20 in ♎ Libra.

4 days after previous North standstill on 5 October 2091 at 08:31 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.007°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.095° in the next southern standstill on 17 October 2091 at 23:45 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 3 days on 12 October 2091 at 18:29 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
