Astro-Verdean philosophy, or Verdean Astronism, refers to the presence of Astronism in the Republic of Cabo Verde under management and philosophical jurisdiction of The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the Republic of Cabo Verde, a national subsidiary for the worldwide Astronist Institution. 

The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the Republic of Cabo Verde oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Cape Verde is split into twenty-two municipalities and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Praia.

History of Astronism in Cape Verde

As of November 2019, the government in Cape Verde does not recognise Astronism as a religion in the country. Despite this, Astronists in Cape Verde are not feared to be under threat of religious persecution in the country and the Astronist Institution has labelled the state of religious freedom there as apathetic. The number of Astronists in Cape Verde is not presently known, but they are expected to represent only a minute population. The language in Cape Verde is Portuguese which presents a further issue for Astronists in the country as few Astronist content has yet been accurately and officially translated into the language.
