Presided by a god named Langsur. Easy to gain the favours of other, patient and undemanding, but has strong convictions. Holding a banner, has a great future to prominence. Illustrated as woh-wohan (fruits), unpredictable livelihood depending on the season; a millionaire at one time, penniless the next instant.
