Axial bonds alternate up and down, and are shown "vertical". Equatorial groups are approximately horizontal, but actually somewhat distorted from that, so that the angle from the axial group is a bit more than a right angle
Equatorial atoms are those which bond with non ring atoms and form angles that are small compared to the plane of the ring. Axial atoms are those which bond with non-ring atoms and form angles that reach up to 90 degrees. Also, equatorial are an a horizantal axis (think equator) and axial are on a vertical axis.
