History of Astronism in Brazil

Astronism is currently not recognised by the Brazilian government as an official religious group in the country, however, religious liberties are generally practiced for all citizens meaning Astronists are free to publicly profess and practice their faith.

As of December 2020, only small amounts of Astronist content have accurately translated into Spanish meaning that most Brazilians cannot access the full array of Astronist content which causes a major barrier for Brazilian Astronists.

Due to Astronism's unrecognised status in the country, the number of Brazilian Astronists is unknown, however, estimates by the Institution have been projected at around 9,000 people in 2019 but this is recorded as having doubled to 18,919 in the 2020 Demographics of Astronism Report.
