Fire, Earth, Air and Water
One for each element
There are four Cardinal Signs in the Zodiac, one for each of the elements. Aries is Cardinal Fire. Cancer is Cardinal Water. Libra is Cardinal Air. Capricorn is Cardinal Earth. Each marks the start of a new season. The beginning of Aries marks the Spring Equinox. The beginning of Cancer, the Summer Solstice. The beginning of Libra, the Autumnal Equinox. The beginning of Capricorn, the Winter Solstice.
Cardinal Signs are grouped together based on how they prefer to act, how they choose to get their needs met, their agendas satisfied and their work done ... and how they behave in a crisis. Cardinal signs are dynamic and proactive. They use initiative and force. They set things in motion. They are the energizers and risk-takers. They get things going and make things happen.
Four different action centers
Aries leads with charisma and courage. Aries is independent and impatient ... totally determined to achieve his desires. Cancer leads with sensitivity and emotion. Cancer is compassionate and caring ... determined to provide for and protect his home and loved ones.
Libra leads with ideas and cooperation. Libra is accommodating and diplomatic ... determined to forge alliances and promote harmony. Capricorn leads from authority and achievement. Capricorn is pragmatic and status-conscious ... determined to leave a legacy and make a lasting mark on the world.

Born with the Sun in Aries -- The Aries Character ---> Aries is the Spring Fire Sign -- Direct and to the point -- Passion is never a problem for Aries. Nor is self-assertion. Nor is being downright pushy and tromping on toes if that gets a job done. Aries is long on initiative and ambition, notoriously short on tact -- and few will apologize for that. Whoever first said, "Lead, follow or get out of the way," was an Aries through and through. (Only what he meant was "I'm gonna lead. The rest of you follow. And God help whoever doesn't get out of the way.")
Born with the Sun in Cancer -- The Cancer Character ---> Cancer's symbol is the crab -- Citizens of an inner world -- Cancers are spirits of emotions and moods. Their feelings -- and inconsistencies -- the shifting climates of their inner world form the landscape where they live. Cancers have a mood for every occasion. Feelings count with them more than thoughts, or logic, or even the evidence of reality.
Born with the Sun in Libra -- The Libra Character ---> Libra is about pairs and partnership --
The social sign ... -- Libras don't do well as singles. They feel incomplete without another half in their life -- another person to whom they feel profoundly connected and intimately involved. They need other people, so a well-functioning Libra will also be skilled in all the little social graces and interpersonal courtesies that make relationships work smoothly for everyone.
Born with the Sun in Capricorn -- The Capricorn Character ---> Reputation is everything! -- If there's a party animal anywhere in your character, it comes from somewhere other than your Capricorn energy. The Capricorn part of you was born sober, and grown up, and knowing how to behave. That Capricorn part of you wouldn't tie one on or wear a silly paper hat at gunpoint. There's bound to be a camera somewhere in the room ... or a lurking reporter. Or the local gossip.
