Astronism in French Guiana refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the French overseas department of French Guiana. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of French Guiana which is under direct jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of France, also called the French Superiate, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of French Guiana oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. French Guiana is split into twenty-two communes and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Cayenne.
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 French Guiana including:
- Astro-French Guianese philosophy
- Astro-French Guianese religion
- Astro-French Guianese spirituality
- French Guianese astroncy
- French Guianese Astronism
