Astronism in Zimbabwe refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the Republic of Zimbabwe. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Zimbabwe, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of Zimbabwe oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Zimbabwe is split into eight provinces and two cities with provincial status, and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Harare.
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 Zimbabwe including:
- Astro-Zimbabwean philosophy
- Astro-Zimbabwean religion
- Astro-Zimbabwean spirituality
- Zimbabwean astroncy
- Zimbabwean Astronism
- Zimbabwean astronomical religion
- Zimbabwean Cosmism
- Zimbabwean space religion
