Astronism in Fiji refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the Republic of Fiji. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Fiji, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of Fiji oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Fiji is split into fourteen provinces and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Suva.
This national branch of the Astronist Institution manages the official representation and depiction of Astronism throughout this territory, including efforts to protect the identity of the philosophy with the intention of further disseminating it throughout the territory. It is The Institution alone that is granted the status of proprietor to the philosophy in this territory as any other organisations or institutions proclaiming such a role are deemed as unauthorised proprietors and are therefore considered as part of the anti-Institutionist movement.
Several terms are used to refer to the presence of Astronism in Fiji including:
- Astro-Fijian philosophy
- Astro-Fijian religion
- Astro-Fijian spirituality
- Fijian astroncy
- Fijian Astronism
- Fijian astronomical religion
- Fijian Cosmism
- Fijian space religion
History of Astronism in Fiji
Astronism is not recognised as a religion or religious group by the Fijian government as of 2020, however, the Astronist Institution has highlighted minimal concern for the violation of religious liberties of Astronists in Fiji due to Fiji's positive track record on religious freedom. Hence, Astronists are generally considered to be free to openly profess their faith in public.
Astronists number just 149 in Fiji, however, due to the majority of Fijians being able to understand English, they have full access to Astronist content.
