Designation of Astronism is a subdiscipline of study of Meta-Astronism that has emerged as a prominent topic of discussion. It relates to the categories and words used to describe Astronism with divergences in what is and isn’t deemed accurate.

Astronism has been described using a variety of terms, all of which have contributed to the debate around how Astronism should accurately be referred to. Astronism is officially and technically categorised as an organised philosophy, a synthesis of both philosophy and religion. However, Astronism is most commonly described just as a philosophy or a religion. Astronism has also been referred to as a belief system, a way of life, a worldview, a philosophical religion or a rationalistic religion.

The debate around Astronism’s designation typically stems from The Institution’s postulation of Astronism as being a synthesis of religion and philosophy, as well as the variety of different ways that it may be described. As part of a discussion of Astronist designation comes the use of examples from within Astronist beliefs and identity that support claims made about its designation.
