Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 39 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 24 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠215.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠247.8°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 07:53, this is 11 days after last perigee on 3 September 2093 at 09:46 in ♒ Aquarius.

1 day after previous North standstill on 14 September 2093 at 09:50 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.823°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.954° in the next southern standstill on 28 September 2093 at 09:48 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 5 days on 20 September 2093 at 18:16 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
