Fantasy Astronomy centers around the depiction of the study of astronomy and astrology in fictional fantasy settings. These visuals are based on astronomers during the Scientific Revolution (16th-17th centuries) but are included in stories with magic systems and feudal politics, with a setting, usually an observatory that has whimsical architecture and scholarly characters. This aesthetic often overlaps with Wizardcore.

The astronomy depicted in the fictional situations and aesthetic pictures is much simpler and magical than actual astronomy, as mapping constellations, making observations through a telescope, astrology, divination, and how the stars relate to the fictional world's magic system are common areas of study for the character or visual design.
