Sun Signs change approximately every 30 days. So looking at the chart above we can see that around February 19th, the Sun is moving out of Capricorn and into sign of Aries. The days surrounding the transition of one sign into the next is considered the Cusp.
For example, anyone born between November 23 between December 21 is a Sagittarius, but if your birthday falls on the December 21st then you are on the Cusp of Capricorn and may share similar characteristics with that sign as well.
Keep in mind that the approximate beginning and end dates of a transition from one sign into the next may vary depending on the source. If you are very close to or on the cusp you might want to check an ephemeris to find out exactly when the sun made it's transition during the month in question. But even if you are on a cusp, or are not sure, you can consider which sign feels more like "you" and most likely it will be correct.
