Meet the Founder of Artipoppe
Anna van den Bogert created Artipoppe in 2012 after the birth of her second child, born from a desire to remember the future and connect back to the heritage of organic motherhood. Now a mother of four, Anna allows us into her inner world, unveiling the genesis of Artipoppe, her perspective of The New Motherhood, her personal spiritual practices, and how she cultivates a sense of sovereignty alongside a connection with the collective. Furthermore, an Astrological Forecast for September, explaining how the essence of manifestation is rooted in our beliefs and choices.
How was Artipoppe born?
“Artipoppe was born from the desire to positively impact motherhood worldwide by inspiring a sense of empowerment among mothers. This vision took shape in the form of a baby carrier, designed to foster a deep connection between a mother and child while also offering the freedom to express individual beauty and style.”
Describe what The New Motherhood feels like.
“The concept of The New Motherhood embodies a belief system that empowers women to trust their instincts and have faith in their inherent ability to shape and define the kind of motherhood they desire. It stands as a testament to the idea that external influences should not dictate the path, allowing each woman the freedom to choose and craft her own unique journey of motherhood.”
How has your personal motherhood journey influenced the vision of Artipoppe?
“Becoming a mother opened me up to a whole new level of consciousness. I have always experienced a feeling that things just don’t add up in our world. The realm of motherhood unveiled a new understanding of reality, illuminating the truth that as women, we’re stuck within a system that lacks harmony and presents challenges to grasping the organic nature of motherhood. I created Artipoppe as a vehicle to drive change and guide mothers back to a renewed sense of trust in their autonomous self.”
What kind of impact do you hope to facilitate in the lives of mothers?
“I sincerely hope to facilitate the opportunity for women to connect with their innate power and freedom within motherhood and beyond.”
Can you share an experience that deeply touched your heart and reaffirmed your commitment to Artipoppe?
“Artipoppe is my playground, and whenever I witness another human engage with this space and take what resonates with them, I am deeply touched.”
What practices help you find harmony in being a mother, partner, woman, entrepreneur, and an autonomous being all at once?
“I view these identities as interconnected roles to be embraced simultaneously. Water is an essential element for alleviating stress in my life. Whether through consuming it, immersing myself within it, meditating beside it, or spending time in the bath or shower, water helps me integrate my life experiences. I have an innate trust that everything is naturally aligning for the highest good; my main practice revolves around the concept of “remembering the future.”
How do you find inspiration and stay connected to your sense of purpose in life?
“By surrendering to the fact that change is the only constant we have in this world. I am driven to continually evolve into a better version of myself, and I consider everything that happens in life as a lesson.”
Reflecting on your own growth and evolution, what are you most proud of?
“My inner fire that fuels ongoing transformation.”
When do you feel most alive?
“When I feel deep emotions!”
What is the greatest teaching you have learned from nature?
“To just be.”
What is your greatest hope for your children?
“That they discover their sovereignty and use it as a roadmap to their highest timeline.”
What is your greatest hope for our world?
“I believe hope stands between our current perception and the reality we aspire to see. I choose to embrace the belief that a harmonious version of Earth awaits, urging us to recognize its presence and step into its manifestation.”
Astrological Forecast September 2023

In last month’s forecast, we explored the synergy between Leo’s vibrant creative energy and Aquarius’ innovative spirit, offering an opportunity for deep rejuvenation through the acknowledgment of karmic lessons. This helped us identify areas in life where our decisions emanate from fear and self-imposed limitations. As we transition into September, this chance for renewal continues.
The theme of renewal currently resonates deeply with humanity, largely due to the underlying subconscious fear of it. The unease concerning innovation often stems from the misconception that embracing novelty requires releasing control. It’s important to remember that everything, in its essence, is energy in various manifestations. Whether a fleeting thought, a strong emotion, a physical body, a house, or a car — all are embodiments of energy. The universe’s intricate tapestry interlaces these energies harmoniously.
At the core of existence are small building blocks that create the fabric of reality. These building blocks arrange themselves in various forms — a foundational blueprint that makes up the sky’s expanse, the composition of dust, the liquidity of water, and the solidity of metal and stone. Beyond our perception, more subtle constructs also create the fabric of reality, encompassing our thoughts, languages, and emotions. Often unnoticed, beliefs arising from these mental and emotional realms have a profound influence over other forms.
What we often fail to realize is that our beliefs impact outcomes. If we anticipate failure, it tends to materialize; if we doubt our capabilities, achievement becomes difficult. Our perception of thoughts and emotions is the foundation for their transformation into reality. The seemingly simple act of choosing a thought or emotion manifests as a pivotal step in shaping reality. This process illustrates the interdependence of all things.
With this realization, we can understand how a single thought, nurtured and accepted, could manifest into a physical entity — be it a car, a loved one, a house, or even notions more complex such as peace, war, and unity. The power lies in our discernment, as the world is constructed based on our perceived truths that create tangible repercussions.
Negative thoughts can birth undesired circumstances if allowed to solidify through belief. Our perceived realities ripple outward, as every choice echoes through the cosmic web. The laws of cause and effect reign supreme. Herein lies the truth: energy transforms continuously, and we are conduits of this transformation. Humans embody a unique facet, encompassing multidimensionality — thoughts intertwined with a physical presence — granting us the power to manifest desires, as long as we are conscious of this truth.
Yet, in a state of disconnectedness, the fear of innovation prevails. We have lost faith that we have control over our own creation. We must remember our innate creative power, guiding it away from destructive, chaotic manifestations. The harmony of Earth exists through organized energy; turmoil thrives where innovation falters, leaving only fragmented blocks.
Every human is free to either construct or dismantle, but such a decision requires an understanding of how the universe works. This Astrological Forecast is more than a translation of cosmic energy. It serves as an invitation to remember the principles of creation and innovation. The choice to build or dismantle rests in our hands. The power of our beliefs should never be underestimated. Observe the world, asking yourself if what is portrayed as the truth aligns with your inner truth. We have the power to shape our surroundings, from the small to the monumental. And so it is.
