Fogot to say it has to be 150kb or less.

First you need to crop it square and then create an export preset. Pick a jpeg compression quality that gets you less than 150K on a few test images.

So you want a 1024x1024 jpg image whose file size is less then 150kb. And what size would you like that to be? 4x6, 5x8 8x10 ...
You're spcifications are not sufficient to fully describe what you need to do. Basically you will need to crop the image to 1024x1024 and then export it as a JPG. Here you would need to specify the size you want the exported image to be and finally using the quality slider experiment until you come up with the file size you want.

A 1024 x 1024 would have to be 4x4, 5x5, 8x8...8^)

Right the OP gave an aspect ratio and file size. Lots of possible ways to get that combination. Which is why I wrote the specifications aren't really specific enough to fully describe what he needs to do.

I am trying to export from aperture 3 (raw file) to a web site.Files can be no larger than 150kb.When I export the only file size I can get under 150kb is exporting to a small and medium email file.When I do this I lose a ton of detail and sharpness, it makes my photos look really soft .When I export 1024x1024 jpeg my files are too large usually over 350kb.
My goal is to be able to export to the photography web site with the sharpest photos possible. So they have to be resized to fit under there size limits.

Are you familiar with the export presets?
I would recommendd you take a look at Exporting Your Images in the user manual. It will explain how to create a preset. if none of the standards one do what you need.
