Astro-Finnish philosophy, or Finnish Astronism refers to the presence of Astronism in the Republic of Finland under management and philosophical jurisdiction of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism for the Republic of Finland, a national subsidiary for the worldwide Astronist Institution. The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the Republic of Finland oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. 

Finland is split into nineteen regions and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Helsinki. This national branch of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism 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. 

History of Astronism in Finland

Astronism is not currently recognised a valid religious group in Finland although religious freedoms for Astronists are generally practiced through the society. Astronists are free to express their beliefs in public without fear of repression. Astronists number 1,750 in Finland as of November 2019 according to demographic reports published by the Astronist Institution. The translation of Astronist content into Finnish had not yet occurred by 2019 which poses a significant barrier to Finnish people accessing the full range of Astronist materials.
