# Gradient Tool is blocked on Illustrator cs6?

My gradient tool on Illustrator cs6 is blocked.It won't let me change color, direction or anything related. The Gradient tool wont even let me click on the gradient, it shows the cursor with a blocked sign(circle and a diagonal line inside of it).Seems very trivial a problem but I can't get to fix it. Did google the issue but to no avail. Please do help.
