Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2096 after 21 days on 29 November 2096 at 21:34.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1197 of Meeus index or 2150 from Brown series.
Length of current 1197 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 7 minutes. It is 1 hour and 23 minutes shorter than next lunation 1198 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 23 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 40 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠143.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠169.7°. 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°).
7 days after point of perigee on 1 November 2096 at 07:33 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 November 2096 at 05:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.

7 days after its ascending node on 1 November 2096 at 07:19 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 14 November 2096 at 20:36 in ♏ Scorpio.

4 days after previous North standstill on 4 November 2096 at 10:38 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.978°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.983° in the next southern standstill on 18 November 2096 at 19:29 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 6 days on 15 November 2096 at 00:36 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
