Astronism in Ghana refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the Republic of Ghana. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Ghana, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of Ghana oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Ghana is split into ten administrative regions and holds one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Accra.
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 Ghana including:
- Astro-Ghanaian philosophy
- Astro-Ghanaian religion
- Astro-Ghanaian spirituality
- Ghanaian astroncy
- Ghanaian Astronism
- Ghanaian astronomical religion
- Ghanaian Cosmism
- Ghanaian space religion
History of Astronism in Ghana

Astronist religious liberties in Ghana have been designated as apathetic in the 2020 Astronist Freedom report highlighting the relative tolerance towards religious minorities of the Ghanaian government.
English is widely spoken in the country which acts as a significant furtherer of the Astronist religion in the country with the majority of content about Astronism being written in English by late 2020.
