The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1184 of Meeus index or 2137 from Brown series.
Length of current 1184 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 38 minutes. It is 44 minutes shorter than next lunation 1185 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 54 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 9 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠168.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠192.1°. 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 20:21, this is 14 days after last perigee on 14 September 2095 at 22:53 in ♓ Pisces.

9 days after its ascending node on 19 September 2095 at 14:10 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 October 2095 at 02:06 in ♐ Sagittarius.

7 days after previous North standstill on 21 September 2095 at 14:29 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.292°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.437° in the next southern standstill on 6 October 2095 at 09:24 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 13 days on 13 October 2095 at 09:30 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
