1. The existence of the moon depends on the sun, yet the light of the moon depends on the sun as the sunlight incident on the moon and reflecting to earth.2. The seasons are caused by the tilt of Earth's rotational axis away or toward the sun as it travels through its year-long path around the sun.3. With the Earth-Moon system, gravity is like a rope that pulls or keeps the two bodies together, and the centrifugal force is what separates them. Due to the centrifugal force is greater than that of the Moon's gravitational pull, ocean water on the opposite side of the Earth bulges out.4. A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth passes between the Sun and the Moon, and the Earth's shadow obscures the moon or a part of it. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, blocking all or a part of the Sun.5. In particular, the Sun is essentially affected by the Earth or the Moon. The pull of Earth's gravity has a small effect on the Sun - almost certainly not note in comparison with the effects that can be produced by Jupiter or Saturn. The Earth "depends on" in the Sun to stay in orbit, and that "it depends" in the Sun of the radiant energy and the light that it produces. More specifically, the plants and animals on Earth depend on these things. Frankly, the big ball of rock under our feet doesn't matter. Period. And, of course, the Moon creates the tides - which are quite important in various forms of the flora and fauna of the Earth. So the Moon "it depends" on the Earth as a focal point for their own orbitting.
