Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2095 after 14 days on 21 March 2095 at 01:10.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 47 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 22 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠354°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠9.2°. 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 16:04, this is 12 days after last apogee on 21 February 2095 at 16:10 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 20 March 2095 at 17:48 in ♍ Virgo.

4 days after previous South standstill on 1 March 2095 at 21:20 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.337°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.438° in the next northern standstill on 14 March 2095 at 10:35 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
