Astronism in Syria refers to the presence of the Astronist religion in the Syrian Arab Republic, as part of the worldwide Astronist Institution.

Astro-Syrian philosophy, or Syrian Astronism, and also known as Syrian Tanwir as part of the larger Tanwir’ism denomination, refers to the presence of Astronism in the Syrian Arab Republic under management and philosophical jurisdiction of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism for the Syrian Arab Republic, a national subsidiary for the worldwide Astronist Institution. The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the Syrian Arab Republic oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Syria is split into fourteen governorates and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Damascus. 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 Syria. As of November 2019, Astronism is not recognised as a valid religion or religious group in the country of Syria. According to the Astronist Institution's late 2019 report called the Demographics of Astronism, Syria had a population of just 100 Astronists. The unrecognised status of Astronists in the country has caused a detriment to religious freedoms for Astronists there. Astronists are not free to express their beliefs publicly and the vast majority of Astronist religious materials are actively censored by the government. The Astronist Institution has expressed concerns regarding the issue for Astronist religious liberties and such, it labelled the situation as censorious in its 2020 Astronist Freedom report. A significant barrier to the further spread of Astronism in the country is the lack of accurate translations of Astronist materials in the dominant language of the nation. As of late 2019, the Omnidoxy had not been translated into Arabic, the most widely spoken language in Syria, which remains a significant issue for Astronists there.
