I'm trying to translate an astrological article. And I have problem in understand the following sentence: "Born with the Sun in the sign of Cancer, the little prince has the same sign as his father."

I'm not really sure what exactly "in the sign of Cancer" means here, especially what exactly "sign" means here. I'm not very familiar with this area. So please help me.

Thank you in advance.
