Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2093 after 18 days on 13 March 2093 at 04:06.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1151 of Meeus index or 2104 from Brown series.
Length of current 1151 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 43 minutes. It is 29 minutes shorter than next lunation 1152 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 8 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠22.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠43.9°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 20:31, this is 16 days after last apogee on 6 February 2093 at 19:24 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 6 March 2093 at 14:56 in ♊ Gemini.
This perigee Moon is 365 184 km (226 915 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 676 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 5 172 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
12 days after its ascending node on 9 February 2093 at 23:58 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 23 February 2093 at 08:08 in ♒ Aquarius.

1 day after previous South standstill on 21 February 2093 at 17:26 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.882°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.943° in the next northern standstill on 7 March 2093 at 08:10 in ♋ Cancer.
After 3 days on 25 February 2093 at 15:05 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
