Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2092 after 9 days on 15 September 2092 at 20:33.
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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1146 of Meeus index or 2099 from Brown series.

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 43 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 26 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠282.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠312.2°. 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°).
11 days after point of apogee on 25 August 2092 at 18:58 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 September 2092 at 07:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.

9 days after previous North standstill on 28 August 2092 at 04:01 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.103°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.164° in the next southern standstill on 10 September 2092 at 11:11 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 9 days on 15 September 2092 at 20:33 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
