I prefer to think of aikido as a Spiritual Practice, rather than a religion. Religions have Rules, practices have "suggestions".
Just like Christianity, Aikido was codefied by just a few students/disciples/uchi-deshi. Perhaps in both we follow the paths as best we can walked by both founders and we end up better than we started. Jeshua often spoke in parable/story form and this was certainly subject to interpretation -which explains why there were more than 4 gospels actually written. O-Sensei also seemed to speak in ways that spawned/spawns many interpretations. Which explains why there are many "styles/schools of thought" in Aikido.
So perhaps one rather pat and easy answer to the original question: What Gods &/or Kami are connected to which WAZA?" is all of them. For myself it is in the dance up to the temple that expresses my thanks and perhaps offers illumination.
