Being conscientiousness means being careful or watchful. People with this characteristic have a need to do things well and they take their obligations to other people seriously. If they say they’re going to do something, they’ll do everything in their power to do it.

Though your horoscope can certainly provide daily insight into how to be like this, there are only a handful of truly conscientious zodiac signs who are thoughtful, efficient, and organized.

When someone is conscientious, it’s easier to put your trust in them rather than someone who doesn't care how well they perform a task or how well they do their job. Not everybody is conscientious, and if you’re not, that doesn't mean you’re a bad person or that you are unworthy in some way.

It's possible for anyone to become more mindful, but here are the zodiac signs who do it best.

1. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You're extremely self-disciplined. If you make a commitment to do something, you're also making a commitment to do it well. You will do the research you need to do, train diligently if necessary, and you'll prepare in any way that you can.

You hate to disappoint people and that includes disappointing yourself. Conscientiousness is often lined with self-discipline and self-control — both traits that you have a lot of.

2. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

If everything isn't in its place and your environment isn't organized, you're not happy. You like to have a schedule and know what you're doing at all times. You have something inside you that makes you feel as if it's more than a good idea to get things done.

You hate the feeling of something hanging over your head. But it's not just getting some done that's conscientious, it's getting it done without mistakes.

3. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You're not one to do something on a whim. You think things through and you weight the pros and cons before acting on something. You have a very clear idea of what you want and what you need, and you never decide things hastily.

Once you've gone through the process and made your decision, you rarely go back on it and you don't have many regrets. You keep yourself accountable and you tend to take full responsibility for your actions, even when they don't put you in a positive light.

You're so independent that you don't even need to be told what to do at your job; you do it without being asked just because you know instinctively that it should be done.

4. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

What you do tends to influence others, so how you appear to others and how you act are extremely important to you. Everything about you is on point — from the upkeep of your house to your manicure. It doesn't matter if it's your day off, you put yourself together if you're going out.

You'd die of embarrassment if someone caught you in dirty and stained clothes. You also keep your promises, which as a leader is essential. You are straightforward, honest, and extremely diligent in doing what needs to be done in order to achieve your goals.

5. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You have such a strong sense of responsibility that you take on the role of everyone's parent. You care a lot about people and it shows in the way you look out for them, and how you're always there if they need you. It doesn't matter if it's a family member or a friend; you'll drop everything to make them soup and bring it over if they're sick, or you'll start a crowdfund when they need financial support.

You always plan ahead and you're the one who has the bandages, safety pins, or Swiss Army knife in case of emergency.

6. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

You're all about tying up loose ends and making sure things are completed in a timely and correct manner. You're very concerned with doing things right the first time, but if you mess up, you'll redo it so it meets your high standards.

You're passionate about everything you do, and you always show a little extra care when you're doing something. Your word is impeccable — you won't say something that's not true, even if it's only to appease someone else, and you stand by your promises.
