Astronism in Guam refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the Territory of Guam. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Guam which is itself under the jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of the United States, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of Guam oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Guam is split into nine villages and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Hagåtña, which will also be the only observatory in Guam.
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 Guam including:
- Astro-Guamanian philosophy
- Astro-Guamanian religion
- Astro-Guamanian spirituality
- Guamanian astroncy
- Guamanian Astronism
- Guamanian astronomical religion
