Astrologer Nadia Gilchrist of Ruby Slipper Astrology explores the significance of First Quarter Square between the Aquarius Moon and Scorpio Sun. Gilchrist writes: “A crisis between detachment versus intensity triggers the need to step back from an all-consuming issue…Take action and step away…See what happens when you free yourself from the control of secrets/obsessions.” She adds: “The square is a crisis aspect so…there will be resistance to liberation and detachment. But the more resistance you experience, the greater the need to step away.”
