Not to be confused with an astronaut, astronomer, or an astrologer.
Astronists (/əsˈtrɒnɪst/) are people who follow or adhere to Astronism, either as their religion, their philosophy, or their political ideology. Astronists may also be referred to as Astroners, Astrians, Astronians, or Astrosophers. Astronist is the demonym for the Astronist philosophy and religion, however, those adhering to Astronist political ideology are more commonly referred to as Astronarians.

While there are diverse interpretations of Astronism which sometimes conflict, Astronists are united by their belief in the significance of the astronomical world as a source of spirituality, guidance, destiny, and existential purpose.

The term "Astronist" used as an adjective is descriptive of anything associated with Astronism or Astronist denominations, persons, beliefs or practices, or in a proverbial sense "all that is astronomical in orientation." It means that a person possesses beliefs, convictions, or engages in practices that are centred on the astronomical world.

In the beginning of Astronism, all Astronists were what are known as "Institutionists" whom are Astronists that believe that Astronism should be governed by the Astronist Institution as the religion and philosophy's dispenser.

Etymology

The term Astronist is form by the prefix astro- or astron- and the suffix -ist meaning "follower of the astronomical".

Coinage

Cometan first coined the term Astronist years after the concept of Astronism was initially ideated by him. The traditional date given to the naming Cometan's religion as Astronism (and therefore giving rise to the term Astronist) is 17th October 2018 according to the Astronist Institution and the Astronist Historiographical Record. Before that date, Astronism was referred to as Millettism and an follower of Millettism was called a Millettarian. After being troubled by the inaptronymity of the appellation Millettism, Cometan decided to rename the entire philosophy and religion and all related terms to approximate Astronism.

Definition

Astronists are individual persons, organisations or whole groups that see the astronomical world, both its observation and exploration, as the central source of their spirituality, existential meaning and personal guidance, and as a result, such persons or organisations are seeking to fulfil their astronalities and to attain astrosis.
