Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2098 after 10 days on 17 March 2098 at 07:43.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1214 of Meeus index or 2167 from Brown series.

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 1 minute longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 2 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠225.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠260.4°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 27 February 2098 at 00:05 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 March 2098 at 23:15 in ♌ Leo.

9 days after previous South standstill on 25 February 2098 at 10:08 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.136°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.231° in the next northern standstill on 11 March 2098 at 15:13 in ♊ Gemini.
After 10 days on 17 March 2098 at 07:43 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
